Ingredients and Techniques for Baking Flour Gives structure to

baked products. Gluten is the protein in flour which gives strength and elasticity to batters and doughs. Use the correct type of flour for baking. Not all recipes require the flour to be sifted. How It's Made Flour YouTube Types of Flour

All-purpose flourused for all general baking. Made of a blend of hard and soft wheat. Unbleached Flourflour that has not been bleached. Types of Flour Bread Flour-has more gluten than all-purpose flour. Used for making

yeast breads and rolls. Used in bread machines. Cake Flour-has less gluten that all-purpose flour. Made from soft winter wheat. Used for making cakes and baked products with delicate textures. You can substitute all-purpose flour for cake flour, use 1 cup minus 2 Tablespoons of allpurpose flour. Types of Flour

Instant Blending Flour-flour that has been specially treated to blend easily with liquids. Used for sauces and gravies. Whole Wheat Flourmade by milling the entire kernel of wheat. Must be refrigerated if not used within a few weeks.

Types of Flour Self-Rising Flour-allpurpose flour with baking powder and salt added. You can substitute self-rising flour in recipes that have all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. If you do not have self-rising flour, you can substitute the following:For each cup of self-rising flour use 1 cup all-purpose flour,

1 tsp. Baking powder and tsp. Salt. Leavening Agents Leavening Agents produce gases in batters and doughs that make baked products rise. There are several types of leavening agents:

Air Steam Chemical Leavening Agents Yeast Air Air is trapped in mixtures during beating and

stirring. Some products are leavened totally by air. Example: Angel Food Cake Steam

Steam is produced in products that contain a high water content. The high temperatures used in baking will cause steam Some products are leavened by steam Example- Cream Puffs Chemical Leavening Agents

Baking Soda Should be used with an acidic ingredient. Buttermilk Molasses

Brown Sugar Vinegar Honey Applesauce Citrus Juice Chemical Leavening Agents Baking Powder Contains a dry acid,

baking soda and cornstarch. Most are doubleacting. They release carbon dioxide when they are moistened and some when they are heated. Yeast Yeast A microscopic,

single-celled plant that produces carbon dioxide gas as it grows. It needs food, liquid, and warm temperatures to grow. Examples: Pizza, Doughnuts, Cinnamon Rolls. Liquids

Hydrate the protein and starch in the flour. Moisten ingredients Serve as leavening when they are converted to steam during baking. Examples:

Water, milk, buttermilk, fruit juices. Fats Help make baked products tender tenderizes the gluten.

Coats the flour particles. Helps trap air which aids in leavening. Examples-oil, shortening, butter, margarine. Eggs Helps incorporate

air into baked products when you beat them. Add color and contributes structure. Helps give dough elasticity and structure. Sweeteners

Gives sweetness to baked products. Helps tenderize and helps the crust to brown. In yeast breads, serves as food for the yeast. Examples-sugar, brown sugar, honey, molasses, corn syrup, confectioners sugar (powdered sugar) Salt

Adds flavor to many baked products. Regulates the action of yeast in baked products. Other Ingredients Flavorings are not essential ingredients but they help make baked products special.

Spices Extracts Nuts Fruits Types of Mixtures Pour Batters Are thin enough to pour in a

steady stream. Examples Cakes Pancakes waffles Types of Mixtures Drop Batters

Are thick, and are usually spooned into pans. Examples Muffins Red Lobster Types of Mixtures

Soft Dough Are soft and sticky, but can be touched and handled. Examples Biscuits

Yeast dough Types of Mixtures Stiff dough Are firm to the touch. Example Pie Crust

Baking Techniques Use the size and type of pan specified in the recipe. The cooking time will need to be increased for larger

pans and decreased for smaller pans. Most recipes are developed for light-color metal pans. If you used dark, metal pans lower the oven temperature by 25 Grease and flour means to lightly grease a pan and dust it with flour. Cooking spray is an easy method of pan preparation, but it may not work with all products. Lining a pan with paper requires parchment paper. Baking Techniques It is important to remember that

ingredients are correct. Do not change ingredients amounts or the product will not turn out. (You can still double and half) It is important to preheat the oven so that the rising process occurs properly and the products do not overcook. Quick Breads Quick Breads

Quick Breads are quick and easy to make. Most contain basically the same ingredients. All contain gluten, which is formed when the flour is combined with the liquid ingredients and the mixture is stirred or kneaded. If the mixture is mixed or handled too much, the gluten will overdevelop. Quick Bread Examples

Pita Bread Cornbread Crepe s Tortillas Examples of Non-Quick Breads

Croissants Loaf bread French bread bagels English muffins Sourdough bread Muffins The muffin method- to prepare muffins,

waffles, pancakes, popovers and some coffee cakes. Muffin Method 1. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Muffin Method 2. Combine beaten eggs with milk and

melted fat (butter). 3. 4. Add the liquid mixture all at once to the dry mixture and stir the batter just until moistened. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =fKBQwBmIUd4 Characteristics of Muffins

A high quality muffin has a thin, evenly browned crust. The texture is uniform and the crumb is tender and light. *ADD TO THE NOTES Characteristics of Muffins

An undermixed muffin has a low volume and a coarse crumb. An overmixed muffin has a peaked top with tunnels on the inside. How to Make Pancakes Kitchen Basics - How to Make Panc

akes Video 5min.com Biscuits Biscuits have a tender, but crisp crust. There are two kinds of biscuits: rolled and dropped. The biscuit method is used to prepare biscuits.

Handle the dough as little as possible. Not all biscuits need to be rolled out. Some biscuits have more liquid and need to be dropped onto the pan or can be used as a dumpling in a stew. Types of Biscuits Rolled biscuits are rolled out to an even thickness and cut out with a biscuit cutter. Drop biscuits contain

more liquid than rolled biscuits. This created a batter that is too sticky to handle but which can be dropped from a spoon Biscuit Method 1. 2. Sift together the dry ingredients into a mixing

bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut the fat into the dry ingredients until the particles are the size of coarse crumbs. Biscuit Method 3. Add the liquid all at once, and stir until the dough forms a ball. Biscuit Method

4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead 8-10 times. 5. Roll into a circle and cut with a biscuit cutter. Characteristics of High Quality Quick Breads Biscuits Tender Light, Fluffy

Muffins Tender Lightly browned top Lightly brown No tunnels or peaks Flaky Moist Pleasing flavor Pleasing flavor Pancakes Tender

Lightly brown No clumps Fluffy and light How to Make Biscuits How to Make Pizza Crust Master Pizza Dough - YouTube#at =26 DO ALL BISCUITS HAVE TO BE ROLLED OUT?

No, some biscuits have more liquid and need to be dropped onto the pan or can be used as a dumpling in a soup or stew. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO PREHEAT THE OVEN WHEN MAKING BREADS? It is important to preheat the oven so that the rising process occurs properly and the products to not overcook.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO KNEAD THE DOUGH IN A RECIPE? Kneading means to push and fold over with your hands to smooth and elasticize dough WHAT IS A LEAVENING AGENT?

A leavening agent causes a product to rise. Examples: Baking powder Baking soda Yeast WHAT INGREDIENTS CAN BE ADDED TO QUICK BREADS TO CHANGE THE FLAVOR?
