The Titanium Chef Patissier XL is the perfect kitchen companion for serious home bakers that need more from their mixer.
Not only can you create complex bakes with minimal effort using the EasyWarm™ bowl and in-built EasyWeigh scales, but you can do it all at the push of a button with a range of useful preset functions.
We’ll help you get the most out of your stand mixer by sharing some of the lesser-known functionalities of this baking powerhouse, with recipes to suit every taste including pink praline brioche loaf, chocolate mousse with orange syllabub, and lemon meringue cupcakes.
Let’s get baking!
For French baking and patisserie, the Titanium Chef Patissier XL gives the ‘light touch’ needed to create delicate doughs and pastries, making the process far less labour intensive than mixing by hand.
Why not make these quintessentially French macarons with perfectly whipped egg whites and a buttery filling - you can even get creative with flavours such as rose, vanilla or pistachio.
Make a light sponge mixture using your Titanium Chef Patissier for our dark chocolate and orange madeleines, before dipping them into rich dark chocolate and candied orange. You can make use of the ‘melting chocolate’ preset to save time and mess, too!
Our pink praline brioche loaf would make a really special treat for brunch or to serve guests. The dough is kneaded and proved in the mixer bowl using the handy dough presets, making a rich, buttery brioche that is topped with pink pralines and chopped pistachios to create a beautiful colour palette.
Preparing glossy melted chocolate for cakes and desserts has never been so easy with the ‘melting chocolate’ preset. You can melt chocolate directly into the warming bowl in no time at all, without needing to worry about any overheating mishaps.
Why not try our chocolate bark - it’s quick and easy to make by simply spreading melted chocolate onto a baking sheet and adding your toppings of choice. This recipe is for candied pecan bark, but you can add other types of nuts or dried fruits to suit your tastebuds.
For devoted chocolate fans, our indulgent chocolate mousse with orange syllabub makes for a delicious dessert.
You can follow our guide for melting and tempering chocolate using the preset here.
The Titanium Chef Patissier XL really comes into its own when it comes to bread making. The mixer’s ‘dough proving’ and ‘dough kneading’ presets are every breadmaker’s dream - with the K-beater tool mixing and kneading the dough in minutes, avoiding any sticky residue or risk of overworking the mixture.
The pair and control function also enables you to connect your appliance via the Kenwood World app, so you can knead and prove your dough whilst focusing on other tasks. You can prepare all of your favourite breads and rolls in bulk batches with ease, without needing to find a place in your home to prove them!
Why not get creative with some of our filled bread recipes - our feta, herb and sundried tomato bread is a tasty tear and share starter or meal accompaniment. These quick flatbreads also make a great side to a greek or middle eastern inspired dish, or to serve with dips at a family gathering and are so quick to make using your stand mixer.
Make light and fluffy Swiss meringue as a base for buttercream icing or to top pavlovas and pies using the ‘Swiss meringue’ preset.
Whip the meringue without needing to worry about overheating the mixture and let the Titanium Chef Patissier XL do the hard work to create the perfect stiff peaks.
Our coconut and lemon buttercream two-tier cake is a beautiful cake for any special celebration. Made using Swiss meringue buttercream, it is flavoured with fresh lemon zest and lemon curd.
Making homemade confectionery may not be the most obvious thing to make with your stand mixer, but they’ll soon be firm favourites at home.
You can easily melt and combine ingredients to make large batches of sweet treats to snack on at home or to gift to friends and family. It’s great to get children involved in making them, too!
Try making our crunchy peanut and chocolate bonbons made in the EasyWarm™ bowl - they certainly look and taste impressive and would make for a lovely gift..
