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…

Bake Malunggay Pandesal and Set Up A Bakery At Home

Two of my students for this month, Jenn Apares and Belle Nakpil. Having fun on our 3rd day of session making Monggo Breads.

Jenn was able to bake these Malunggay Pandesal as part of their assignment and things to do at home in between our session. This is why there are always a 2 day gap in my class, to give the students time to practice what they've learned and then bring some dough and bread for me to look at. Belle forgot her breads at home so i am very satisfied with Jenn's first time with Pandesal.

It needs at least 3% malunggay to be visible but the Pandesal is excellent. I am so happy for Jenn, she can now help her parents' bakery. Finally. This is only after our 2nd session, i admit i have to push my students but it was all worth the challenge. Plus, they had fun doing it!!!

after chopping the fresh leaves, just pulse them into the finished dough, lightly kneading to incorporate the veggies.

Now that obviously has Malunggay! My last advice is to reduce the amount …

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…
