The Key for Long-Life Cakes

Pentaor introduces the multi-functional cake improver, PentaCake, which is the key for maintaining the freshness and stability of battercakes. By using the PentaCake, industrial bakeries can produce pre-packaged preserved cakes, with extended shelf stability, followed by a quality similar to the quality of fresh homemade cakes.

- Microbial contribution: Inhibition of the mould growth, due to - Physical contribution: - High specific-volume leavening. - Prolonged softness. - Persistent moist texture. - Non-disintegration during slicing. These physical characteristics are achieved by the existence of the right balance of the emulsifiers, stabilizers and leavening agents. acidity balancing and water activity reduction, increasing the effectiveness of the preservative.

- Chemical contribution: Characterized by the prolonged durability of the “clean” flavors, due to the antioxidant combination.

Basic Recipe Ingredients: Sugar - 25.8% Wheat flour - 23% Water - 15% Eggs - 15% Oil - 15% PentaCake (5201) - 5% Glycerol - 1% Potassium sorbate - 0.24% Flavorings - as required Instructions: • • • Heat the oven to 170°C. Dissolve the potassium sorbate in the water and pour into the mixer bowl. Add the eggs, the oil, the glycerol, the sugar and the flavorings to the mixer and mix thoroughly, until the sugar is dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix for 1 minute. Wait 2 minutes. Mix again for 2 minutes. Pour a 2 cm layer into the trays. Baking time for English cake trays: 40-50 minutes.
