The Original Kolache Mix

From "The Best Little Bakery in Town!"

Let me start out by saying “Thank You” for taking your valuable time to inquire about my Kolache Mix. My name is Robert Ahrens and I have been involved in the kolache business for over 40 years. It was in 1969 that my father purchased a small bakery in Houston Texas that produced an “authentic Czech.” kolache. After working with the “family business” for 10 years, I came to Austin Texas where I have owned/operated my own little Kolache Shoppe for almost 25 years. I have always had a passion for cooking and, for my entire adult life, have made a living in some facet of the food business.

Through out my time in business, visions of expanding my one unit shop into a multi unit corporation have led me to the necessary step of developing a mix from my scratch recipe. This mix would function as the key to quality control by helping the company to maintain the highest level of quality and consistency within each individual unit. The mix must be user friendly, produce a quality product, and be cost effective.

In early 1996, I was referred to Mike Hurley (whose specific area of expertise is sweet bread doughs) with American Bakels, Inc., a bakery goods manufacturing company. I expressed to Mr. Hurley my desire to produce a commercial kolache mix that emulated the authentic Czech. kolache that I produced from scratch. It had to perform the same, have the same great sweet yeasty flavor and exhibit the “light and fluffy” texture that is one of the most defining characteristics of my “scratch dough kolache”.

Over the next 4 – 5 mo., and with much trial and error, Mr. Hurley and I developed from my recipe what we think is the finest sweet bread dough/Kolache Mix on the market today. It is extremely user friendly while exhibiting superior performance (due in part to the natural enzymes that are added and function as dough conditioners) and needs only water, eggs and yeast added to it to produce a batch of dough. The Mix fully exhibits (and often exceeds) the integrity and characteristics of the “scratch dough kolache” that I have built my business on for the last 25 years. And, at only about $.04 oz., is very cost effective!! Also, it’s versatility allows you to control labor and production costs by producing multiple products from just one dough.

With The Mix, you can produce anything from pigs in the blanket to authentic open faced fruit kolaches. Or, how bout a bacon or bacon, egg and cheese kolache roll. Maybe a cinnamon pecan roll or a cinnamon raisin roll. And then it also makes the most delicious, light and fluffy dinner roll, hamburger bun or hot dog bun. You can top the dinner rolls with poppy seeds or sesame seeds to create still more variety. How about a ham and swiss or a ham, cheddar and jalapeno kolache. The possibilities are endless!!!

Please feel free to get in touch with me so that I can answer any and all questions that you may have as well as help you to locate a distributor in your area. I also have training packages (programs) that start out at $1500. I look forward to hearing from you as I love to talk kolaches!!!!
