10 Quart Mixer

If you ask me, a 10-quart mixer this size looked very heavy and so i thought when i first tried this way back 1998. Not anymore. I mixed some dough the other day and i was surprised to find the bowls sooooo light like a feather compared to my 20 quart bowl. I used to complain about how heavy it was before and i would even wait for my helper to show up before i make a batch of rolls. Or ask my sister if her helper can come over so she can help me out, you know how those helpers are, they disappear as fast as your cellphone load. Anyway, it looked like the heavy lifting did me some good so i am not going to be dragged down by the weight of the bowl anymore, good for everyone, there will always be breads on the table. This batch is 1 kilogram, a sweet yeast dough where half was used for the cinnamon rolls and half for plain dinner rolls. The recipe has 18% sugar, 15% eggyolks, 15% butter, and 2% yeast. Other than these, the rest of the formula is pretty much the same like your ordinary dinner roll or Pandesal.

Dough is proofing, i used a sponge for this recipe so i don't have to wait for hours for them to rise. This is probably the first time i used WELLINGTON to make a Sweet Yeast Dough, always use Purefood's for this recipe, but i was happy with the results. Without the sponge, with this formula, it would be a disaster.

Notice how puffy and the dough has risen, that is the effect of the sponge in the dough.
Changing the pans halfway through the baking time to even the color of the crust.
Can't wait to eat a couple with Eden Cheese!!!
My brother's request, cinnamon rolls in a 9 by 12 baking pan, need to turn this over.
Soft and fluffy, not overly sweet this recipe is a regular guest in my baking class, always a surefire winner. I would have students requesting for more to bring home. 09293145463 cakesandpetals for cakes and cake decorating articles.

3rd Class Flour, What's It All About

For starters i cannot make this Hard Monay if i did not bring any 3rd class flour or soft weak flour to New York. Once i ran out of 3rd class and tried Cake Flour, it turned bad, do not even think of using All Purpose, it will be soft but not chewy as this one made with yes, 3rd class indeed. So third class is hard to find here in the US if you will use that term. You have to say or look for soft wheat flour, that's it, not hard wheat flour, not cake or All purpose but something in between these two. It is easy to find in the Phil., just ask your local bakery suppliers and they know it is Tercera. Tercera is not for bread, bakers use it basically for cookies, cakes and other pastries, but we bakers know how to create bread recipes using part of this flour with the bread flour or hard wheat flour. It makes a softer version of any of your fave breads, with a cheaper price tag. Plus if i own a bakery, i get to use the third class for my cakes and cookies, lowering my food cost i…

Baking Pandesal, Once Again on Proofing

I finished my one one one last August, fortunately my student arrived and made it on time before i left or went back to New York. Originally, she was asking for a September 23 to 27 date and since my flight was September 7, i had to decline her request.

I was surprised to hear from her a couple of days later when she changed her mind and decided to go home so she can catch up with me. Paid her deposit and we set the date. 3 days later, she sent me a photo of one of her cook, badly burned and all bandaged up from the hospital. Class postpone. I prayed for her that she gets well so my student can still make it. I was thinking, she would have to wait till December and well, December being a busy month, i have a feeling we will not make it and i have to return her deposit.

Praise G-d, she made it and we had a really really fun session. Her goal was to bake Pandesal and Ensaimada. She has a restaurant in Taiwan and she caters to Pinoys there selling Chicken Inasal which judging from her st…

July Session

This is the only session I had so far where i used 2 different brands of flour which is Globe by Universal Robina and Sun Moon Star by Pilmico.Now, if you have attended my class, and I know some of my former students still read my blog then you know that i preach water and adore first class flours with a high protein content. Anything that is lower than my expected level is out of the book just like this popular brand I will call Brit (not it's real name). If you know your history and you bake breads, you know what this brand is. Now, you can certainly email me so I can divulge to you in secret what this horrible I mean disappointing brand of first class is.First off, it does not deserve it's price tag. Too expensive for an over P800.00 per sack flour when a P720.00 sack can use up more water. Why is that important? Well, too long to discuss but I hope your teacher can tell you why. If not, then you went to the wrong school.So here I am, using my student's flour ( they alr…
