The thought of pastry itself is so tempting that make most of us love to eat it. Especially kids are really fond of pastries a lot.
Pastry refers to any cake made with a fresh cream filling or frosting. They are a variety of pastries available in the market but the most popular ones are the Black forest and Pineapple pastries. Pastries are usually made with fat free sponge cakes where all the sponginess comes from the eggs.
Pastry is the name given to various kinds of baked goods made from ingredients such as flour, butter, shortening, baking powder or eggs. Small cakes, tarts and other sweet baked goods are called “pastries“.
Pastry is distinguished from bread by having a higher fat content, which contributes to a flaky or crumbly texture. A good pastry is light and airy and fatty, but firm enough to support the weight of the filling. When making a short crust pastry, care must be taken to blend the fat and flour thoroughly before adding any liquid.
In the beginning, both of the pineapple cakes and the pineapple pastries were made of the pure pineapples. The ingredients of the pineapples had rough fibers, and the taste was sour. It was not so delicious. Although the bakeries used lard to dress up the flavor, the taste was not very ideal. Through many experiments of the bakers, they, finally, found the best partner, the white gourds. The white gourds contained an amount of water, and its fibers were more detailed. After the process of dehydrating and a long-bull cooking with sugar, pineapples, the white gourds and maltose, the jam would be tastier.
Moreover, in Chinese medicine, the white gourd was a kind of food which was good to release internal heat or fever. It was also easy to accelerate human body’s metabolism. On the other hand, the white gourds were good to digest and relieve one’s thirst. They were extremely the good partners of the pineapple pastries.
As for the paste, the bakers formerly used lard to dress up the flavor, but now, due to the healthy attention, butter is often used as a substitute for lard. When we eat the pineapple pastries, we can smell the flavor of butter. The pineapple pastry has been one of the most popular traditional snacks in Taiwan.
