My KA 4.5 qt stand mixer does a good job of whipping egg whites for angel food cakes, but the bowl is not large enough to adequately fold in the dry ingredients. I am thinking about purchasing a large copper bowl and a hand mixer, just for beating the whites. Does anyone use a handmixer when making an angel food cake? If so, what brand and model mixer do you use? I’ve heard mixed reviews thus far - some people have good success with hand mixers for this job, and others not. I would really appreciate your feedback before I buy any more baking equipment.
Thanks for your input!
