Are you an avid baker located at high altitudes? If so, then you know the challenges that come with baking at high altitudes. The lower air pressure and drier climate can cause ingredients to behave differently, leading to flat cakes, tough bread, and other baking mishaps.
Thankfully, the Instant Stand Mixer Pro from Instant Brands is designed to handle the unique challenges of high-altitude baking.
Step 1: Adjust Your Recipe
When baking at high altitudes, it's important to adjust your recipe accordingly. This means reducing the amount of leavening agents (baking powder/soda), and sugar and increasing the liquid in your recipe so that it doesn't rise too quickly and collapse under the lower air pressure.
Step 2: Use The Right Mixing Speed
The Instant Stand Mixer Pro comes with 10 different speed settings that allow you to easily adjust your mixing speed according to your recipe needs. When mixing batter for cakes or cookies at higher altitudes, it is recommended to start on a low speed setting gradually increasing until reaching a medium-high speed for best results.
Step 3: Use The Right Mixing Bowl
The Instant Stand Mixer Pro comes with a large 7.4-qt stainless steel bowl that can hold up to 120 cookies in a single batch which is perfect for larger recipes such as bread or cake doughs. Stainless steel bowls are also great for high-altitude bakers because they don't react with acidic ingredients like aluminum or copper bowls might.
Step 4: Monitor Your Mixing Time
Overmixing can cause gluten formation which could result in tough baked goods such as breads or muffins. The Instant Stand Mixer Pro has a digital timer feature that allows you to set up time limits when mixing and will stop automatically when done according to your preset time limit thus avoiding overmixing.
Overall, the Instant Stand Mixer Pro from Instant Brands makes high-altitude baking easier by providing the tools necessary to adjust your recipes and mix ingredients correctly. With its powerful performance, sturdy construction, and easy cleanup, it's the perfect addition to any high-altitude baker's kitchen.
