Benefits Of Using Extracts

Benefits Of Using Extracts

Extracts, are commonly used in baking to add concentrated flavors to recipes. Here are some situations where using an extract can be beneficial:

  1. Intense Flavor: Extracts are ideal when you want to infuse a strong and distinct flavor into your baked goods. Cardamom extract, for example, can provide a concentrated burst of cardamom flavor that might be difficult to achieve using whole cardamom pods or ground cardamom alone.
  2. Consistent Flavor: Extracts offer consistent flavor profiles from batch to batch, ensuring that your baked goods have the desired taste every time. This is especially useful when you’re aiming for a specific flavor balance or intensity in your recipes.
  3. Ease of Incorporation: Extracts are easy to incorporate into baking recipes since they are liquid. You can simply add them to the dough or batter, ensuring even flavor distribution throughout the mixture. This can be especially useful when dealing with delicate batters or doughs.
  4. Precision and Control: Using extracts gives you precise control over the amount of flavor you want to add. By adjusting the quantity of extract, you can achieve the desired taste without altering the texture or consistency of the baked goods.
  5. Time-Saving: Extracts can be a time-saving option compared to using whole spices or ingredients. Instead of grinding or crushing cardamom pods, using cardamom extract eliminates the need for this extra step, making the baking process more efficient.

When using extracts in baking, following the recommended quantities mentioned in the recipe or adjusting to taste is essential. Different extracts vary in strength, so be mindful of the potency of the specific extract you are using.  Angel Bake extracts are known for their purity and strength.  As many of our customers say, a little goes a long way!

Overall, extracts are a convenient and reliable option for incorporating intense and consistent flavors into your baked goods, including when you want to add the unique taste of cardamom to your recipes.

Making Of The Angel Bake Bulgarian Rose Extract

The Rose Valley, also known as the Valley of the Roses, is a region located in central Bulgaria, between the Balkan Mountains to the north and the Sredna Gora Mountains to the south. The Valley encompasses several towns and villages, including Kazanlak, Karlovo, Pavel Banya, and others, and it is renowned for its production of high-quality roses and rose oil. The region’s mild climate and fertile soil provide ideal conditions for growing Rosa Damascena, the species of rose used for the production of rose oil. Every year, at the beginning of June, the Rose Festival is held in Kazanlak to celebrate the rose harvest and the region’s rich cultural heritage. Flowers are handpicked and processed daily. It takes twenty kilos of rose petals to make one gram of rose oil we use to make the best rose extract in the world.

High Volume French Macaron Production

Question: How to cost-effectively implement a high volume French macaron production line while maintaining great product quality?

Pro bakers recognize that scaling a small operation isn’t always as straight forward as one would like. High volume manufacturing operations are built upon exacting, simple, repeatable procedures which aren’t reliant on personnel expertise and know-how. To maintain quality, much of the work is performed by machines, machines that are right for the job. When it comes to baking lots of macarons, consistent batter performance, and product look and feel are without saying very important.

We had learned of Bakon USA and their products years ago and wondered if we could do some experimentation with their one of a kind depositor- the Drop TT. Last week, we got a chance to try our Single Step French Macaron Mix with the Drop TT and below is a summary of half day’s worth of experimentation.

The Drop TT is a tabletop depositor that can fill a large tray in about 20 seconds! And with its continuous automatic conveyor, all the user has to do is fill its tank with batter, select a program and push start! Feed it one tray after another and you’ll have thousands of shells piped in no time! So that is the theory…

Bakon USA Drop TT Depositor

The Drop TT has a 30 lbs bin and uses gravity and rotating screws to push the batter through six nozzles sitting below the bin. The size of macaron is determined by how long the screws are rotated. This is part of programming the machine, which also depends on the viscosity of the batter being pumped into the nozzles. For things to work consistently, the batter must have exactly the same characteristics every time. You can also program how many rows and the distance between the rows. We now need to make pounds of batter that is just right for this tech marvel.

Making 20-30 pounds of macaron batter using the traditional make-from-scratch approach would have taken us over an hour of measuring, sifting and folding. Using the Angel Bake single step macaron baking mix, we completed the job in 10 minutes with a pro Hobart mixer. The beauty of using a mix is that we have full control of moisture, mixer speed and mixing time and, as a result, we can deliver precisely the same batter every time! And as an added bonus, the kitchen was left squeaky clean. We didn’t have to crack any eggs (or keep a freezer full of egg whites) or sift and mix ponds of almond flour and sugar. Imagine having to make Italian meringue?

Mixing 10 pounds of French macaron batter

For our first batch, we used 4 KG (8.8 lbs) of the Angel Bake Single Step French Macaron Baking Mix along with 800 grams of 122 ºF water. Keeping with the instructions on the box, we started the Hobart at slow speed (setting one), ran for one minute and shifted to 2nd gear for 3.5 minutes. In no time, we had 10.5 lbs of batter. For our part, we watched the Hobart spin and took pictures.

With the help of our Bakon representative, we poured the batter into their Drop TT bin, called up the macaron program and lined up the trays. Ah, we did have to prime the pump by running in continuous mode for a few seconds. Once the nozzles were primed, we were ready to watch the show.

Depositing Macaron Shells
Drop TT at work

In no time we had five trays ready. The oven could only take four. So we stopped and off into a 280 ºF convection oven (fan speed was set to medium). With fingers crossed, we stared at the shells baking and watched as they slowly turned into perfect macarons! Here too, we didn’t drop the trays on the floor nor did we pop any air bubbles with toothpicks. We didn’t even wait for the shells to dry…

In half an hour, we had four trays done. With a larger oven, we could have done much more as we had more trays and batter in the Drop TT.

Having demonstrated success, we decided it was time to push the envelope. Could we whip up a monster 8KG batch? Why not try? Despite the Hobart suggesting max of 4KG, we went ahead and emptied two boxes of our Single Step Angel Bake French macaron mix into the mixer, 1600 grams of water and a pinch of the Angel Bake powdered food coloring for good luck.
