Thank-you ApplegumPam, you were correct about my intent in my earlier post....thanks for explaining better than I did.
If you want to learn about the importance of ingredients in a baking recipe start with a recipe you've already baked and know well. Than begin experimenting with that recipe. Every time you bake that recipe change the ingredients and proportions of them and you will see how ingredients effect each other.
OR if you seriously want help, there are millions of baking books that explain the roles of each ingredient in the beginning of their books.
If you want someone to personally help you, I suggest taking a baking course where the teacher has a lot of time to individually coach you.
