Metric weighing scales

For consistent results it is recommended that a metric kitchen scale be used to weigh as they provide greater accuracy than measuring cups.

Tare (zero) the scales with the container in the position then spoon or pour the ingredients in until the desired weight is achieved.

measuring cups and spoons

If using graduated measuring cups, it is important to spoon the dry ingredients loosely into the required cup. Do not tap the cup on the counter-topor pack the ingredients into the cup unless otherwise directed. Level the top of the cup with a knife. When using graduated measuring spoons, level the top of the spoon with a straight edged knife or spatula.

Metric liquid measuring CUPS

If using a graduated, measuring cup, place cup on a flat surface and check for accuracy at eye level.

NOTE

In general, water weighs the same in grams as it measures in milliliters.

HINTS AND TIPS

BEM600XL_IB_A12_FA.indd 22

21/06/12 10:25 AM

HINTS AND TIPS

For better bread making

Do check the ingredients and read the recipe before starting to bake.

Do measure ingredients accurately – weight measurements are more accurate than volume measurements.

Do use bread flours unless the recipe states otherwise.

Do check used-by-dateson ingredients.

Do add ingredients in the order stated in the recipe.

Do store open ingredients in airtight containers.

Do use ingredients at room temperature.

Don’t use flours that contains a protein level of less than 11%.

Don’t use tableware cups, glasses or spoons for measuring.

Don’t use hot water or liquids.

Don’t use self-risingflour to make yeasted bread unless the recipe states otherwise.

If you live in a high altitude area above 2500 ft. you will probably need to alter the yeast quantities in the bread recipe. The higher the altitude, the lower the air pressure and the faster the dough will rise. Try reducing the yeast by

¼ teaspoon.

If the weather is hot and humid, reduce the yeast by ¼ teaspoon to avoid over rising of the dough.

Flour properties can alter on a seasonal or storage basis, so it may be necessary to adjust the water and flour ratio. If the dough is too sticky, add extra flour 1 tablespoon at a time; if the dough is too dry add extra water 1 teaspoon at a time. A few minutes is needed for extra ingredients to be absorbed. Dough with the correct amount of flour and water should foam into a smooth round ball that is damp to the touch but not sticky.

When hand-shapingdough for rolls, weigh each piece of dough for more evenly sized rolls.

Sponging yeast

Instant active dried yeast is used in the recipes in this book however fresh or compressed yeast can be substituted.

Fresh or compressed yeast needs to be ‘sponged’ (fermentation started) before adding to the other ingredients.

To substitute, use double the amount of fresh or compressed yeast for the amount of dry yeast in a recipe.

To sponge the yeast: Place the quantity of fresh compressed yeast in the quantity of water (warmed) from the recipe together with 1 teaspoon sugar into a clean glass bowl, stir to dissolve and cover with plastic wrap. Allow

to stand in a warm area around 85°F (30°C) for about 30 minutes or until the mixture starts to bubble and froth. This mixture should be used without delay.

Warm area for rising

Yeast, either when sponging or in the dough, requires warmth to rise.

To create a ‘warm area’ for dough to rise, place prepared dough item in a stainless steel mixing bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a tea towel and place on top of a slightly smaller bowl of fairly warm water. Ensure kitchen is warm and free of drafts. Allow the dough to rise until double in size.

BEM600XL_IB_A12_FA.indd 23

21/06/12 10:25 AM

HINTS AND TIPS

For better baking

Check the ingredients and read the recipe before starting to bake.

Weigh and measure ingredients correctly.

Variations may occur in raw ingredients use so adjust other ingredients and baking times if required.

Preheat oven before starting recipe preparation, this will ensure the correct temperature is achieved before

baking starts.

Temperature and cooking times may vary with some ovens so adjust accordingly. If using a fan forced (convection) oven reduce the

temperatures in the recipes by 15-20°.

When mixing, start the mixer at a lower speed then gradually increase to the recommended speed in the recipe especially when adding dry ingredients.

When using smaller quantities turn off the mixer from time to time and scrape the bowl with a spatula.

Ensure beaters and mixing bowl are clean and free of fats when whipping egg whites as these will impede aeration.

Spray baking sheets and cake pans with an oil spray and line with parchment paper; this will make removing your food easier.

Butter should be softened at room temperature to make creaming butter and sugar easier.

Keep surfaces and ingredients chilled when making, handling or rolling out pastry. Butter for pastry making should be kept refrigerated.

Avoid stretching pastry when rolling out as it will shrink when baking. Use light, even strokes in one direction and avoid pressing down hard on the rolling pin. Where possible, rest pastry in the refrigerator before baking.

24

Eggs should be at room temperature to give better volume when whipping.

Break eggs individually into another container before adding to other ingredients to avoid potential spoilage.

Separate egg whites carefully to avoid inclusion of egg yolks. Egg yolks contain fat and will prevent successful whipping of egg whites.

Rinse beaten egg residue from beater and mixing bowl or other utensils with cold water immediately after use. Using hot water will set the egg and make removal difficult.

Test if cakes are cooked at the end of baking time by touching the top lightly, the cake will spring back if cooked. A wooden skewer or toothpick can also be inserted carefully into the center of the cake, if it comes out clean the cake

is cooked.

For crisper results when baking cookies, remove the baking trays from the oven and placed directly onto wire racks. Move the cookies slightly away from their baked position on the trays and cool completely before removing.

PAgeHINTSheaderAND TIPS.....

FOR CAKE AND PASTRY MAKING

Flour, such as cake, pastry, all purpose, self rising and whole wheat, used for cake and pastry making should be lower in protein (gluten) than flour used for bread making.

Cake and Pastry flour have a lower protein (gluten) content and give baked products, such as cakes, muffins, pastries, scones and pancakes, a softer texture.

All-purpose flour is often used as a general purpose flour however is not recommended for bread making.

Self–rising flour is a blend of all purpose flour and raising agents such as baking powder. Self rising flour can be used in recipes to replaceall-purposeflour and baking powder. To make 1 cupself-risingflour sift together 1 cupall-purposeflour and 2 teaspoons baking powder (Care should

be taken when using self rising flour as a substitute in recipes as not all recipes have the same proportions of baking powder and baking powder loses it's leavening (rising) power over time.).

Whole wheat flour contains more parts of the whole wheat grain — flour, bran and wheat germ — and can be used in muffins, breads and pie dough but will have a denser texture.

Corn flour is made from maize (corn) and is used in some baked products to give a finer texture and can also be used as a starch to thicken sauces and desserts.

Rice flour is derived from rice and is used to give a finer texture in baked products such as shortbread cookies.

Baking powder is a mixture of cream of tartar and baking soda and is used as a leavening agent in baking.

Baking soda is used as a leavening agent in baked goods. When using baking soda in a recipe the product must be baked at once and not stored for later or the leavening power will be lost and the product may

not rise.

FATS IN BAKING

Butter will give particular flavor and soft texture to baked products. When using butter in baking recipes it is best to use unsalted butter as salted butters vary in their salt content and may change the consistency and taste of your baked good.

Margarine can replace butter to give a similar result.

Oil can be used in some baking to replace butter but will give texture and

flavour differences.

Eggs should be at room temperature to give better volume when making cakes and sponges. Standard large eggs were used in the recipes.

Milk should be full fat unless specified. Light, low fat or skim milk can be used but will give texture and flavor differences.

Sugar (granulated sugar) is used to give flavor, texture and color to baked products. Bakers sugar is often used in baking as it is easier to dissolve when creaming butter and sugar. Brown sugar is also easy to dissolve and can be used to give a different flavor and texture. The large crystals of raw sugar are slower to dissolve and can be suitable for baked products such as muffins.

ISSUE

TIP

 

 

Choice of beaters

Do not use a dough hook with a beater - this will damage

 

the Mixer.

 

 

Speed Settings

Use the mixing guide above to select a suitable mixing speed

 

when preparing recipes. Begin mixing at lowest speed then

 

increase to higher speed to prevent splattering.

 

 

Bowl Speed

Use the low bowl speed for speeds 1-6and the high bowl speed

 

for speeds 6-12.

 

 

Mixing

Mix for the recommended time in the recipe - avoid over

 

mixing.

 

Should an object such as a spoon or spatula fall into the bowl

 

while mixing immediately turn the mixer off, unplug at the

 

power outlet and remove the object.

 

 

Egg white

Be sure the beaters and bowl are completely clean and dry

 

before use - a small amount of fat and egg yolk will affect

 

whipping performance.

 

 

Bread dough

Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Use speed 1 to

 

knead ingredients into a dough ball. DO NOT place hands near

 

dough hook when mixer is operating.
