In order to understand what's going wrong you need to understand what's happening in the oven. Bread rises in the oven because the yeast gets a boost from the heat before it is killed by it, and by the expansion of gases (O2, CO2, and water vapor) trapped in the dough. Well-developed gluten will trap air well, under-developed gluten will allow it to ...

The easiest solution is to use different cheeses. Most commercial pizzerias, like Domino's or Pizza Hut do not use expensive cheeses like Parmesean or fresh mozzerella... they use crappy cheese designed to be stretchy and to stay that way when warm instead of hot. In general, they use part-skim mozzarella, which is often sold pre-shredded and in hard blocks ...

For this recipe, the most likely issues are: overbaking and wrong oven temperature Simply put, removing too much humidity during the baking process. Wrong oven temperature can aggravate this problem, especially if it is too low (to hot = burned edges and wet center). over-mixing This recipe is very sensitive to overmixing, which means forming gluten ...

I usually add about 2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes to my bread recipes (3 cups of flour). I haven't tried it with potato flakes or potato flour. If you put too much the dough will be very sticky and the bread dense

I recommend putting your pizzas in a place where they stay warm. An isolated box, or in your bed in a carton box. The dough will get soggy eventually, though. Domino's gets away with this because the dough is thicker so it takes a while. If you want crispy, nice, fresh pizza, I recommend eating them fresh, especially because you are making them fresh ...

A version without marshmallows would be those that bind rice krispies (or cornflakes) with chocolate. See for example bbcgoodfoods (using cornflakes) or a site for kids. The base procedure is to melt chocolate, optionally thin it a bit with butter and/or syrup and fold in your cereals. If you want light rice krispie treats, use white chocolate instead of ...

There are plenty of recipes for rice krispie cakes without marshmallows in them. Rather than trying to substitute in your recipe, you'd be better off making something slightly different but that's been tested. Here's an example from tesco. The recipe we use is based on golden syrup, but isn't online. A search for "rice Krispie cake -marshmallow", possibly ...

Sugar water will just make your Krispies soggy. Anything but gelatin and marshmallows will make them taste funny, but sufficient peanut (or other nut) butter, to make the stuff stick together, plus an egg might give you something tasty and edible after baking.

I bake lots of cheesecakes and have never used the water bath. I always place a shallow dish of hot water under my cake. The trick to baking a cheesecake is to use a low temperature and longer baking time. Cool very slowly to avoid cracking.

I have had the same crumbly problem when I haven't blind baked it long enough ( look for the slightly darker color and note strong aroma of deliciousness before removing from the oven ). Also check the knife you are using. A serrated bread knife can be very helpful in a cleaner cut through a graham cracker crust. Hope this helps.

Most recipes for seitan cook it too hot in the beginning (over-leavening it before it can set, getting it too light/"brains-ish") and too short (leaving the gluten rubbery). Try 140°C, 3 hours, wrapped in THICK tinfoil (several layers. Tightly or loosely makes a textural difference, because you are controlling how much it can expand). Also, brands of gluten ...

I can't say I've done exactly what you're trying to do, but I've had quite a few attempts at setting gummi laces into jello, and I really don't think it's going to work to bake them in. You have a few major problems: Gummi laces do strange things when they get wet. They swell up to about 2-3x their size (in every dimension ... so 8-27x volume), diluting ...
