KitchenAid alternatives for mixing?

Hi! So I’m probably one of the few humans on the planet who hasn’t splurged on a KitchenAid stand mixer. Can this be done with a dough hook on a hand held mixer or by hand?

If your handheld has a turbo setting, you can try it. But you might burn out the motor.

Try it by hand. Here is a great tutorial from King Arthur: https://www.kingarthurbaking.com/blog/2017/06/19/kneading-wet-dough-by-hand

Absolutely! I often mix this dough by hand, no real need for a mixer other than it makes it a bit easier. Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix by hand until everything comes together, then keep folding the dough over itself for 5 minutes or so until it smooths out some. You could also use your handheld mixer.
