Does anyone know if I can make a double-batch of MFF? Or do I need to make two separate batches?

Thanks!

I have never doubled the recipe but I don't see why the recipe itself could not be doubled SO LONG AS you have a mixer with enough power and capacity to handle. I have a 6 Qt Kitchen Aide Pro that I had for a while and it makes a half batch of MFF but struggled a bit with a whole batch. I bought a 7 Qt Commercial Kitchenaid earlier this year, which has a much stronger motor, and it handles a whole batch more easily. I feel like a double batch would stress the motor too much so I have not tried it.

I have a 5 quart and have done a double batch, but I always have a good bit of kneading once the mixer has done it's part. When I do a single batch I have very little kneading to do by hand.

I doubled once with my 6 kt KA but I didn't care for the growling noises it made. So I just make two separate batches now.
