Baking Help from Janet
Check Janet’s hints and techniques for easy tips and techniques.
How thick should pastry be rolled?
Janet recommends the pastry should be rolled to the thickness of a £1 coin.
Why has my Jus-Rol Pastry Sheet cracked on unrolling?
This is probably due to the pastry sheet being too cold to unroll, the sheet should be at room temperature for unrolling. If the sheet starts to crack as it is unrolled and is still cold in the centre, leave it partially unrolled for a short while to allow the centre to warm up and aid unrolling.
Janet’s top tip - If the sheet is cracked - don't despair, just gently push the pastry back together again with your fingertips.
My pastry sheet split when I lifted it to line the dish – what should I do?
Make sure that there are no cracks in your pastry before you start lifting it. Place the pastry around a rolling pin, then lift it over the dish and gently unroll. Finally, press the pastry gently into the tin.
Janet’s top tip – if you don’t have a rolling pin a roll of cling film or a clean wine bottle will do!
Why did my pastry crack during baking?
This is likely to be caused from too much flour being used in preparing the pastry or the filling giving off steam during baking and having nowhere to escape too.
Janet’s top tip - When enclosing a filling in pastry make sure you add a couple of slits to the pastry to allow the stream to escape.
Why does my pastry sheet have a sticky texture?
This could be because the pastry is too warm, place your pastry back in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up. Also check your work surface is not warm or damp and that you have a light covering of flour on the surface.
Why did my pastry burn whilst baking?
This may be due to the pastry being cooked at the incorrect oven temperature, double check your baking instructions. If you are making a dessert and sprinkling with sugar, sprinkling the pastry with sugar too early may cause this.
Why did my pastry shrink whilst baking?
Some shrinkage of the pastry is normal, we recommend leaving rolled out pastry a few minutes before baking it.
Can I microwave the pastry to cook it?
No our pastry needs to be cooked in the oven.
My pastry has brown specks in it, what is this?
This is bran and it naturally occurs in wheat flour.
