Food processor/mixer

    This will sound like an absolutely stupid question but be kind.
    I'm a decent home cook but I don't bake. If I was to try something, and it says put in a mixer, can I use a food processor instead? I have a processor but not a mixer.

    Depends what it is, a food processor might be too much processing for some mixes and it doesn't work the same way as a mixer but I have some cake/buttercream recipes that work in a processor but not all will.

    I think it'd be running far too fast for a bread or cake mixture.
    Lidl do a decent mixer from time to time, about 1/4 the cost of a Kenwood chef, or have a look on or DoneDeal for a s/h one near you.
