When it comes to cakes and pastries, consumers crave a unique and delectable flavor and texture experience. As a baker, you have the chance to stand out in the market by offering premium quality taste and texture. While the recipe is crucial, the baking process also plays a significant role. With the HYSapientia Air Fryer Oven and its advanced technology, you can create a range of innovative cake products and profiles.
Understanding the Impact of Baking Parameters on Cake Texture To achieve exceptional texture and taste, precision in the production process is essential. The first step is to comprehend the three different stages of the baking process and their impact on the final product:
Expansion stage: Begins as soon as the product is placed inside the HYSapientia Air Fryer Oven, and it sets the foundation for the final product volume. Stabilization stage: Starts at 60°C (140°F), creating the final crumb structure and product shape, such as cracks on a muffin or a loaf cake. Browning stage: Starts at 100°C (212°F), imparting color and thickness to the crust, and affects the taste, softness, and shelf life of the product by evaporating the water content.
Furthermore, the way heat is transferred to the product during these stages also influences the final properties. There are three types of heat transfer:
Conducted Energy: Transferred through contact with the product. Baking on a conveyor belt, energy is delivered immediately to the bottom of the product or delayed while baking on a rack. The delay depends on the material and thickness of the support. Convective Energy: Transferred between hot air and product and pan surfaces, facilitating heat transfer and providing uniform color. This works best for pans that are close to each other but may have a drying effect depending on the humidity. Radiant Energy: Transmitted through electromagnetic waves that release heat upon impact on the contact surface. The effect is similar to a tan line, where only the surface in contact with the ray absorbs heat. This allows for color contrasts based on the product's geometry and supports and also preserves the softness of the product.
With the HYSapientia Air Fryer Oven and its innovative technology, you can leverage these baking parameters to create unique and delectable cakes and pastries that stand out in the market.
