Competitive products use “enriched flour bleached.” We use natural “wheat flour,” because we believe bleaching agents aren’t necessary and lead to a less wholesome and healthy product.

Baking

Can I eat the raw dough?

Please, do not eat raw dough. It is really much nicer when baked ;-)

Do I need to roll the dough with a rolling pin?

Just unroll the dough with the baking paper. It is already made to the perfect size and thickness, and can be baked with the paper.

How do I know how thick the dough should be?

It is already rolled on baking paper to the perfect thickness. Just unroll with the baking paper on a baking tray/sheet.

How do I prepare the baking pan?

Preparation isn’t necessary, you don’t need cooking spray either. Just roll out the dough on the pan with the baking paper, and the dough is ready to bake. Baking paper is oven safe up to 260 °C.

On which oven rack do I place the pan?

Always place it in the middle rack of the oven, unless otherwise required by your recipe.

How can I make the product more golden brown?

Baste the dough with egg wash prior to baking. To make egg wash: mix 1 raw egg and 2 tbsp. of water and beat with a fork or egg whisk.

How can I reheat a pastry on the next day?

For it to be perfect again, heat it up in a preheated oven for a couple of minutes. It will be crisp and deliciously smelling, just as you love it. Do not use a microwave to reheat; this will make the dough floppy.

Which is the perfect heat for baking the dough?

  • Regular gas oven: Chicago Style/Rome Style Pizza and Milfoy pastry at 220°C, Croissant Dough at 200°C, Tart Dough at 180°C
  • Convection oven: Chicago Style/Rome Style Pizza and Milfoy pastry at 200°C, Croissant Dough at 180°C, Tart Dough at 170°C

How long do I let the baked dough cool before removing from the pan?

Because the dough is baked on baking paper, you can remove from the pan immediately. It will not stick to the pan.

Can the dough be baked in the microwave?

Microwave use is not suitable for raw dough. A toaster oven can be used, but should be monitored as baking times will be longer than stated for conventional or convection ovens.

What is the advantage of baking the dough on baking paper?

The advantages are really great:

  • No need to prepare the baking pan with grease or cooking spray
  • No need to further handle the dough, as it already has the perfect thickness and shape
  • No clean-up after baking: you just remove the paper from the baking sheet - done!

Is the baking paper oven safe?

Yes, you can bake the baking paper with degrees up to 260°C

Why is the baking paper turning brown while baking?

Unlike some other baking papers, it is typical that this baking paper will get a little browner, for one reason as it is thinner than regular baking paper sheets. However, this does not impact the baked good sitting on it in any way.

General Questions

Where is the product made? Is it imported?

We have two production sites in the heart of Europe (in Austria and another site in Hungary).

What is that hard plastic disc inside the package?

It is a valve used to allow the product to “breathe.” This is necessary because real yeast is used in the dough. And to maintain the perfect environment for our yeast dough products, we’ve added specialized valves to the packaging to ensure your croissants and pizza crusts always rise up and bake to perfection.

What does the Keyhole logo mean?

Keyhole has been around for approx. 20 years and is well recognized by Swedish and Danish consumers.
