Tips For Making Chocolate Cupcake Recipes
-When using whole wheat flour in baking add 1 Tbs. of Vital Wheat Gluten for each C. of flour used and your cakes and muffins will turn out much softer.
-Baking Soda produces carbon dioxide bubbles, but here the catalyst is an acid such as buttermilk, molasses, or yogurt. Baking soda reacts immediately, so it should be sifted first with dry ingredients, and then added to the acidic ingredient only right before the dish is placed in the oven.
- Most professional chefs like to use unsalted butter because it is one way of controlling the salt content of a dish. When baking, many recipes for desserts and other sweet items do not call for salt —hence, unsalted butter is the only way of being sure that nothing goes into the recipe other than what is called for.
- When baking you can substitute vanilla yogurt instead of shortening to make the food healthier.
