When it comes to baking, the first thing that comes to my mind are usually cupcakes, brownies, cookies and cakes. It never even crossed my mind to take a baking class for the low-sugar bread such as Baguette’s and Soya bread. I feel like it’s something I can’t do whenever I imagine the bread makers cooking bread in pre-historic brick ovens that insinuate that aromatic fragrance.
Fortunately, my mom signed me up for a baking demonstration sponsored by her trusty baking store, Dough-It-All, in BF where she gets all her baking essentials. The demo was sponsored by Zeelandia, a company from Holland where most of the products distributed in the Philippines are made from Zeelandia Indonesia.
The morning session was dedicated for the low-sugar bread such as Baguette’s, Soya Bread and Multicereal Bread. It was amazing! It was my first time to see so much bread come to life in a few hours. The afternoon session was allotted for the high-sugar bread like muffins, cupcakes, carrot cake and moist chocolate cake.
Apparently, the selling quality of Zeelandia is convenience. They offer a mix for the most popular bread from Baguette’s to moist chocolate cake! Most of there recipes just need their mix, eggs, butter, and water. What’s also nice is that it is well-calculated that you can determine your raw cost per piece if you follow the procedures properly. Their products pave the way for convenience in keeping a business running by keeping inventory low. Great innovation, indeed! I’m sharing pictures from the baking demonstration! Enjoy the love for bread 🙂
I’m not sure if I can make bread like how the guy doing the demo did it. He was so technical with the bread proofing, measuring and shaping but it was fun watching this particular demo indeed!
He cut it up for a different bread design. It makes me want to cut up the dough myself!
Freshly baked Baguette’s
I loved how he twirled the bread to shape!
The dough was dipped in a sesame mix.
It looks yummy! It makes me want to eat it with butter and jam.
Here’s a different design.
Fresh from the oven!
It was rock-hard outside but it was soft and chewy inside. Yum!
I love doughnuts but I haven’t been eating of lot of these lately because it’s not that healthy. However, they’re still delicious!!!
Rounding the bread and flattening to suit what Filipinos love.
Frying each side for 45 seconds.

Moist Chocolate Cake
This was my favorite and I want to do this on my own. Their chocolate mix was delicious. It had just the right sweetness in my opinion so I’ll share the recipe for this. The ingredients are 500g Moist Cake Mix (Zeelandia), 200g (4pcs) medium eggs, 200g oil and 100g water. Just mix all the ingredients and bake at 180-200 degrees Celsius for about 30-40 minutes if it’s cupcake-sized.
