Batter expansion, starch gelatinization, protein coagulation, and cake crumb structure from cake batters containing 0.5-10 ppm of silicone were observed during actual and model baking. Silicone in batters tended to cause poor batter expansion, small cake volume, a gummy layer, bottom rise, coarse grain, and a ringlike pattern on the cake. Starch gelatinization and protein coagulation were not affected by silicone dosage. These phenomena were interpreted as indications of a lack of foam stability of cake batter during baking.
