The quality and quantity of these components are important and influence on the properties of the final product as well as the stability of quality during shelf life. The most important factor in cakes making is the availability of soft wheat flour and the proportions of its components (8%) protein, gluten quality, strength and ash contents nearly (0.4 %).
