Pastries can be mistaken for cakes or other type of desserts; the difference is the ingredients it contains and how they are prepared. Pastries are generally made from flour and fat and does not constitute a complex technique of preparation unlike cakes.
A pastry is as simple as dough rolled into a single form or shape which is oval or round, it is not as colorful as cakes and it can either be sweet or savory.

Danish and Puff Pastry
Danish originated in France but became famous in Denmark, in which they call it “Viennese”. danish pastry uses a similar recipe to puff pastry, however, recipe includes yeast. Danish pastry is typically used for sweet recipes and topped with fruits or jams and often seen it as part of the breakfast menu.
Puff pastry does not contain yeast, unlike the danish pastry and requires steam to rise. The process of creating puff pastries are time consuming but the end result is worth it. It is characterized by its flaky, thin and crisp layers. Puff pastry is mostly used for savory dishes such as pie crusts or sweet fillings like mille feuilles.
In creating a puff pastry, the goal is to produce multiple alternating layers to produce the flaky, crisp crust. At Dunbar Systems Inc., we can source or produce industrial bakery equipment solution for your puff pastry production.
The industrial baking process of both danish and puff pastries starts with combining the dough ingredients followed by dividing the dough for automated lamination. After the process of lamination, it will then proceed to make up production and depending on the desired end product, dough can be curled, filled, folded, twisted or crimped.
Proofing is another crucial step to create the perfect puff before baking the pastries with the right temperature.
The first automated doughnut machine was created in 1920 by Adolph Levitt where it was featured in the World’s Fair in Chicago. From then, doughnuts have become a comfort food for Americans.
Doughnuts can be filled or dipped in different flavors and usually cooked in a deep-fat fryer. The process starts with mixing and kneading all the right ingredients into an industrial mixer followed by shaping the doughnuts to a ring shape before proofing, allowing the dough to rise as the yeast ferments, proofing permits it to be light and airy.
Doughs will then flow automatically into an open fryer and conveyed to the next step of drying and glazing before packing.
Cinnamon rolls are a sweet pastry perfect for any time of the day, but it is a popular breakfast food for Americans. The oozing butter and sugar are enough to keep everyone coming back for more.
The common ingredients of a cinnamon roll are flour, yeast, sugar, butter and cinnamon and the process of producing this sensational bread is similar to the industrial baking process of bread with the addition of glazing and decorating.
