Can you make cookie/cake batters in the KA Food processor TSV?

This is the deal breaker for my decision to buy this!  Thanks!!!

I don't think it would be good for a cake because once you add the flour it would be over mixed and possibly tough.I think cookie batter would be fine but not a large recipe.I am only guessing though do hope someone else answers.

I own a KA food processor and use my KA mixer for cookie/cake batter.  

 

I don't think it would be a good idea.

@QVCdebt

 

Yes you can, google it for lots of recipies.  I do not because I own a hand mixer and even then you have to use a rubber spatula to make sure the sides get mixed in evenly.

I own both the KA mixer and food processor.  I won't make cake or cookie dough in the food processor. It's great for pie crust and pizza dough but I would not use it for batter type items.

I have a hand mixer as well, and do use it to for cakes and batters.  I was just curious about thoughts to do it in the food processor! I asked the question on the Q site and they said I could use the dough blade to make batters.  I'm so on the fence!! Thanks! Smiley Happy

Technically you can.

 

Honestly, you shouldn't.

 

If you care about the texture and crumb of your baked goods, you really don't want to use the food processor even with the dough blade.  The lowest speed is too fast and the pulsing will make it uneven.

 

It's not meant for cookies and cakes.

I wouldn't, either.

 

Overmixing happens in a flash and you just wasted time, effort and grocery $ on tough, overmixed batters that you can't "undo".

I make cookie dough all the time in my older model KA food processor. Better than using the hand mixer. I expect making cake batter would be fine, too. I just never tried that.

A food processor doesn't not incorporate air into the batter which is necessary for cakes.   If you made cookies,  it would only make a very small amount.   A mixer,  either a hand or stand mixer,  would be much more suitable for both jobs.
