Learn to Regulate the Heat of
By Mrs. Janet McKenzie Hill, Editor of
the Boston Cooking School Magazine
There is just one way to make
your cakes rise high and keep an
even surface. Have your oven
moderate at first, until the cake is
fully men; then increase the heat,
Co as to brown it over quickly.
Extreme heat stiffens the dough.
If you stiffen the outside of the
cake before the rising is complete,
you stop the rising process. Then
the leavening gas, forming inside,
will bulge up the center, where
the dough is still soft, and spoil
the shape of the cake. f
KOTE Biscuits or other pastries
made from stiff dough, that are cut into
shapes for the oven, bake in a hot oven.
This is because the cut surfaces of the
dough do not sear over, but rather
leave the pores open, allowing the
leavening gas to escape and the heat to
penetrate readily. Small ovens cool
quickly; therefore they should be made
several degrees hotter than a larger
oven, and the less the door is opened
the better. Do not attempt to bake
bread and pastry together. Bread re
quires prolonged, moderate baking
pastry the reverse.
' Have a strong nnderheat for baking
powder preparations, especially pastry.
These are only a few of the many
baking helps found in the K C Cook's
Book a copy of which may be secured
by sending the colored certificate taken
from a 25-cent can of KC Baking Pow
