Does the five hand-fold technique make a noticeable difference in the outcome of this bread? I'm wondering why not just put it in the stand mixer...
...with the dough hook, like all of the other brioche / challah I make (even Chad Robertson's recipe). With so small a quantity of ingredients, it would be easy, so I'm wondering if the 5 folds are worth the effort.
