Day 2 Commercial Bread Making Hands On Class

Took some samples off the second day session to make a platter of some sorts, a bread tray of day 2,Soft Buns which would be the base for Hamburger Buns or Pan de Limon, Pan de Lito, Hotdog Buns, Pan De coco etc., Pizza from the Lean dough formula, which can be made also into French Breads, Ciabatta, Foccacia, Cinnamon Rolls.



Schedule of Baking Classes for December is on the 9th, 12, 14.
January 10, 13 15
February 1 3 5, my last one before i go back to New York. When i will be back to Manila again, i have no idea, it depends on what America gives.

You can still catch up the Cake decorating lessons, there will be no baking this time just pure decorating because time does not allow it, you can have the baking pre scheduled ahead of time if you want to, i need at least 3 students to do the session.



I made two batches of the Red Velvet Cupcake, topped with prepared sugar flowers (Royal Icing) and Cream Cheese Frosting with Coffee flavoring.


The Red Velvet Cake ready to be loaded into the oven. If you browse the internet, you will find at least 12 different Red Velvet Cake recipes, oil based, butter based, 2 tablespoons of cocoa, others with more cocoa, with or without milk, leavened with baking soda plus vinegar, or baking powder etc., It's up to you to pick which is the best and in here, there is no lack for people to taste test the baked goods. Unlike in New York where i have to wait for my sister to visit from Manhattan before i could bake for testing, here, i get to bake anytime i want.

Just send the cupcakes off to my sister's house or give away to anyone who visits. I am thinking of selling one of these days, maybe when i come back next time. I would need to buy another mixer perhaps, maybe a 20 quart just like the one i have in New York. I already checked how much it would cost me to ship it, and it is a whopping thousand dollars, at least. It's like buying a new unit over here so forget it. Too bad, because the Omcan brand is pretty excellent compared to the one i have here in Fairview. :(

Back to the cupcakes.


I will be posting the recipe plus more of the images in my tumblr account maybe this week, it will be a very busy, busy month so i apologize for not updating my blogs. :)

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…

HOW TO MAKE A PUDDING, PINOY STYLE

ANY LEFTOVER BREADS, DRIED BREADS AS LONG AS THEY HAVE NO MOLDS IN THEM, YOU CAN USE THESE TO MAKE YOUR HOMESTYLE PUDDING.


MOIST BUT NOT DENSE, I MAKE THIS FOR MY MOTHER SINCE SHE LIKES SOFT FOODS AND SHE CANNOT CHEW ON THE CRUSTY BREADS AND COOKIES I REGULARLY BAKE. GOOD THING WE HAVE LEFTOVERS!!!! NO NUTS PLEASE!!!!

A GOOD PUDDING IS MADE USING A BAIN MARIE, PLACE THE PUDDING PAN ON A LARGER BAKING PAN WITH WATER AT THE BOTTOM. STEAM BAKE FOR 40 MINUTES OR UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN.

DO NOT FORGET TO GREASE THE BAKING DISH OR THE PUDDING WILL STICK A LITTLE, YOU WANT NICE CLEAN CUTS...


THE PUDDING PLACED ON A SQUARE DISH, PAT SOME BUTTER OR MARGARINE ON TOP IF YOU LIKE. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO STEAM BAKE RIGHT AWAY, YOU CAN ALLOW THE RAISINS TO SOAK FOR AN HOUR TO SOFTEN THEM.

ADDING RAISINS TO THE PUDDING GIVES IT A TWIST... YOU MAY ADD SOME DRIED CRANBERRIES ALSO.

ADD SUGAR TO THE MIXTURE OF BREAD, MILK AND EGGS. ADJUST THE SWEETNESS.

instant yeasts and active dry yeast in bread making

My first experience with yeast baking did not go well at first despite the many baking books i have in my collection( which were all wiped out by the typhoon Ondoy, sept 26, 2009). The most ridiculous thing is that in your attempt to proof the yeast, you actually just snuff the life out of it by using water that is too hot for the yeast to handle. So you throw it out and then try again. Later on, many years after, i found out from my teacher in class that i did not even have to do this, simply use tap water, add a teaspoon of sugar, then the yeast, stir and voila!!! Wait for the dough to bloom or froth and your done. This is if you are using active dry yeast. Instant means you simply dump it in the flour mix, no blooming necessary.

Shown here in these images, two types of yeasts, the active dry has to be bloomed first before using, then when the yeast froths, you can dump it into the mixing bowl.

The instant yeast on the other hand, is more convenient to use, i weigh it with the rest of…
