Hi Everyone,

 

I bought a few bags of the Monarch White Cake Base ..I believe it is the 50 lb bag....

 

Has anyone else used this mix and if so what would be the ratios for smaller cake batches.I am trying to get the equivalent of a boxed mix at 432g...I need to know the water ,oil and number of eggs needed...The only ratios are on the bag but they are for the entire bag in an industrial mixer...

 

 

Thanks

 

 

Laurel :-)

Who the hell is this Bake Machini anyways...I am not a large company and YES I am a professional baker with my own company for 13 years...This does not warrant my question to be a Joke!!!:-x

 

I am not Cake Boss where I mix up enough batter for hundreds of cake a day so YES...I need the formula for the bulk mix in smaller ratios....If you have a problem with that NEWBIE then get Off this site!! Really...some people...

yes as enga says if you post the ratios you have -- someone smart can determine the smaller amounts you need --

Ahhhhh.Thanks K8..I didn't know what that meant...LOL:oops:

 

 

 

Okay ...here is what is on the 20kg bag..which is roughly 44lb as I know you do not use kg in the US.

 

20 kg bag of base mix   44lb

8 kg water                      17lb 10oz

4 kg eggs                       8lb 13oz

 

 

I am used to making batches the same as a boxed mix roughly 432g to 500g boxes depends on the brand.....If someone super smart can help me figure out the smaller amounts I would love you forever!!

AI have not used the product you have. However, if you convert all kg to g, the conversion becomes easier. You have 20000 grams of mix. That equals 40 "batches" of your usual 500 g qty. 8000 grams of water divided by 40 batches is 200. 400 grams of eggs divided by 40 is 10. I hope this helps, and I hope more so that I am right!

Awww, it's not about being smart, it's about looking on the back of someone else's bag :lol: I used to cut out and save the formulas off the bags.

 

 

My base mix was 22.68 kg (50#) Formula for a large and small batch are listed on the bag. It might be worth a shot using a small amount to make a test batch, and it worked out fine for me. Looks like the formula divided everything by 5 and kept the ounces the same.

 

50# large batch

 

50 lbs. base mix

17 lbs. 8 oz whole eggs

15 lbs. veg. oil

11 lbs 4 oz water

 

10# Small batch

 

10 lbs. base mix

3 lbs. 8 oz whole eggs

3 lbs. veg. oil

2 lbs. 4 oz water

 

 

2 lbs. base mix

11.2 oz whole eggs (48 oz + 8 oz / 5)

9.6 oz veg. oil (48 oz / 5)

7.2 oz water (32 oz + 4 oz. / 5)

 

There are 453.6 grams in a pound so either make a double batch or you can break it down further by dividing it in half. hth
