BAKERY




A bakery (baker's shop or bake shop) is an establishment that
produces and sells flour-based food baked in an oven such as
bread, cookies, cakes, pastries, and pies. Some retail bakeries
are also cafés, serving coffee and tea to customers who wish to
consume the baked goods on the premises.

A baker is someone who bakes and sometimes sells breads and other
products made using an oven or other concentrated heat source.
The place where a baker works is called a bakery.

BAKING




Baking is a method of cooking food that uses prolonged dry heat,
normally in an oven, but also in hot ashes, or on hot stones. The
most common baked item is bread but many other types of foods are
baked. Heat is gradually transferred "from the surface of cakes,
cookies, and breads to their centre. As heat travels through it
transforms batters and doughs into baked goods with a firm dry
crust and a softer centre".[2] Baking can be combined with grilling
to produce a hybrid barbecue variant by using both methods
simultaneously, or one after the other. Baking is related to
barbecuing because the concept of the masonry oven is similar to
that of a smoke pit.

TOP 10
BAKING TIPS




1. The right tools for the job

For dry ingredients (e.g., flour and sugar), use measuring cups and
spoons that can be leveled off for exact measurements. Better yet,
measure dry ingredients by weight so you can skip the leveling all
together. Liquid ingredients need glass or plastic tools with a
pouring spout.



2. Measured success

Because flour settles and compacts in storage, stir before measuring.
Then, spoon into your measuring cup and scrape excess off with the
back of a knife. Resist the urge to tap the cup on the counter or to
shake it to level; both methods will pack the flour and you’ll end up
with more flour than the recipe calls for. (Note: Flours have differing
flavors, textures and weights, so don’t swap out in a pinch. Learn more.)



3. Best Butters

Use unsalted butter for baking so you can control the amount of salt in
your finished product. Hungry for flakier pastries, higher cakes, chewier
cookies and better flavor? Use European-style butter, which has a higher
proportion of butterfat to water and starts with the best quality cream.



4. Bake in Advance

As a time-saver, you can make pie crusts and cookies in advance, then
freeze and bake straight from the freezer. We love slice and bake
cookies for feeding holiday crowds. Baked, decorated cookies can also
be frozen.



5. Crusts Like Cold

For flaky pie crust, ensure all of your ingredients are super cold to
keep the butter and other fats from melting. Chill the bowl, freeze
small pieces of butter, use ice water and a machine (not your warm
hands) to blend ingredients and work in the coolest corner of your
kitchen.



6. Cakes likes Warmth

Cake, on the other hand, loves a little warmth. Make sure all of your
ingredients are at room temperature before starting the process. Cold
ingredients won’t trap and hold air bubbles efficiently, and air
bubbles are what give cakes their grandiose height. Quick tip: Warm
cold shell eggs in a bowl of hot tap water for 10 minutes.



7. Choosey chocolatiers

The best chocolate contains only cocoa butter and no other fats. Read
the label; if the chocolate contains vegetable oils, it isn't the best
quality chocolate you can buy.



8. Keep the oven door closed

Let the oven do its job and resist the temptation to frequently check
on your baked goods while they're baking. Opening the oven door lets
heat out and changes the air pressure of the baking environment, which
can be detrimental to the final product. If you must, spy using the
oven light!



9. Spice Secrets

Dried spices lose their potency and freshness within six months to a
year from the date they’re first opened, so the spices from last year’s
cookie bake-a-thon may need to be replaced. Buy small quantities of
less-used dried spices in the bulk section to prevent waste, and always
date new bottles of your tried-and-true spice cabinet favorites.



10. Don't Fill 'er up!

Fill cake, muffin and bread tins only about two-thirds or three-quarters
of the way up leaving enough room for the batter to expand and rise as
it bakes.
