Lean Dough

Straight Dough Method

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.

12 Basic Yeast Dough Production

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