gingerbread: step one
Action- melt the fat slowly with the sugar and syrup.
Behaviour change- the fat sugar and syrup become liquid and mixed thoroughly.
Possible faults- overheatuing of this mixture with high sugar content causes the sugar to burn.
gingerbread step two and three
Action- stir the melted mixture into the dry ingredients
Behaviour change- the raising agent starts to release carbon dioxide
Possible faults- carbon dioxide is released slowly from the bicarbonate of soda.
Action- add the egg and the milk.
gingerbread step 4
Behaviour change- the raising agents are given off slowly and raise the cake. the starch geletanises, the proteins coagulate. the rich brown colour and moist texture are developed.
Possible faults- high temperature would burn the sugar. it also causes too rapid rising, and a cracked surface, which later sinks in the middle.
