How to soak the biscuit?

For a biscuit cake or cake to succeed and turn out to be airy and tender, it is important to follow some rules for soaking the cake layers. First, the amount of syrup should be moderate: the biscuit dough quickly absorbs moisture, so it may seem that there was not enough impregnation. But if you increase its volume, the product will become wet and quickly deteriorate.

Secondly, it is important to soak the cakes evenly. For this, many housewives use a teaspoon, but this method is not quite convenient.The dough may remain dry in places, but some areas will be waterlogged. To distribute the syrup evenly, you can use a culinary brush or spray.

Thirdly, do not forget about the laws of physics. The liquid goes down, so the lowest cake soak the minimum, medium - moderately, and the top - abundant. Impregnation will penetrate into the lower layers, providing uniform moistening. Fourth, it is better to treat the dough with hot or at least warm, not cooled. When it cools, it starts to stale, and in this case, adding syrup will not help to achieve the best effect.

Tip: consider the original characteristics of the biscuit. If it is dry by itself, then more impregnation is required. If the dough is quite wet, then the syrup should be less.

Choose any recipe, prepare the impregnation and use it to improve the properties of the cake or cake layers for the cake.
