French translation:oreille / saillie
Explanation:
Both of these appear in GDT, and I think one or the other is probably suitable in your case, though you really need to see the exact shape of it to decide for sure — the one on my mixer is more like an 'oreille' than anything else...

agree  FX Fraipont: You're right -I thought "lug" was a verb here. But I was wrong: http://www.cnn.com/interactive/world/0302/iraq.antiquities/c...

  -> Thanks, FX! Oh yes, 'to lug' as a verb would be too 'familier' for this sort of register... Interestingly enough, though, we do refer to an 'ear' vulgarly as a 'lughole'
