biscuit method
a mixing method used to make biscuits, scones, and flaky doughs; it involves cutting cold fat into the flour and other dry ingredients before any liquid is added
muffin method
mixing method in which the mixing dry ingredients are combined with the mixed liguid fat and other ingredients.
creaming method
A mixing method that begins with the blending of softened fat and sugar. Resulting in a rich tender, cakelike product.
A batter or dough of yeast, flour, and water that is allowed to ferment and is then mixed with more flour and other ingredients to make a bread dough.

Lean Dough
A dough that is low in fat and sugar. Contains less than 10% shortening and sugar.
Rich dough
A dough high in fat, sugar, and/or eggs. Contains more than 10-30% shortening and sugar.
Straight Dough Method
A mixing method for yeast goods in which all ingredients are mixed together at once. (dump and go!)
Slowing the fermentation or proof of yeast doughs by refrigeration.
Yeast products are brushed with a liquid using; water, starch paste, egg wash or commericial aerosol sprays.
Dough is placed on the workbench and covered to let the gluten rest.
Process by which yeast acts on the sugars and starches of the dough to produce carbon dioxide gas (CO2) and alcohol.
Windowpane test
Demonstrates complete and proper gluten development. To apply the test, take a small amount, form a ball and stretch it to a thin translucent membrane.
12 Basic Yeast Dough Production

2. Mixing
3. Bulk fermentation
4. Punch down
5. Scaling
6. Rounding
7. Benching
8. Make up and panning
9. Proofing
10. Baking

12. Storing
Pour Batter
Batters liquid enough to pour.
Bakers % Formula when you don't know the % of the ingredient.
total weight of ingredient/ total weight of flour x 100 = % of the ingredient.
Killing of Yeast
Doughs contain other organisms, including bacteria and molds. Most of these, including yeast, die when the interior temperature of the item reaches about 140 degrees F (60C). When it dies, fermentation stops and no more carbon dioxide gas is released.
Maillard Reaction
The caramelization in baked goods that occurs between 212 & 350 F (100-175C), as a result of a reaction between reducing sugars and amino acids or protiens. It causes the sugar-protein bonds to brown at a lower temperature and creates different shades of color ranging from yellow-gold to rich brown. Named after its discoverer, the chemist Dr. Louis-Camille Maillard.
Make up and Panning
When making yeast doughs this is where the dough is shaped into loaves or rolls then placed in pans or on baking sheets.
When making yeast doughs this is a continuation process of yeast fermentation that increases the volume of the shaped dough.
When making yeast doughs, after scaling the pieces of dough are shaped into smooth, round balls. Simplifies the later shaping of the dough and also helps retain gases produced by the yeast.
Yeast Dough Mixing
When making yeast doughs, methods combining the various stages that happen in a mixing bowl such as: pick-up stage, clean-up stage to create a dough where the gluten becomes smooth and elastic.
A result created by overmixing quickbreads where it produces tough interior and irregular shapes and large, elogated holes inside quickbreads.
Drop Batter
Batters thick enough to be dropped from a a spoon or scoop in lumps.
