by Allen Fitzpatrick, Desiree McAllister, & Rachel Prokop

Allen Fitzpatrick, Desiree McAllister, & Rachel Prokop

This experiment tests whether Enova oil is an acceptable substitute for vegetable oil in Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Cake. Three cakes varieties are tested. The control cake consists of 100% vegetable oil, the first modified cake is made of 100% Enova oil and the second modified cake is a reduced fat version of Enova oil. Objective tests measure the cake height using calipers and the TA.XT2 to measure penetrating force. Sensory attributes are tested using triangle, preference, moistness, and sweetness tests. Fifty-two untrained Central Washington University students are judges for sensory evaluation.
