Who doesn’t enjoy cakes? Cakes are something that nobody can say no to and is always ready to taste it. There’s no greater feeling than baking your own delicious cake on your kitchen and getting the specific taste you’re searching for.
Baking a cake is an extremely simple job and it’s fun too. Knowing all of the steps correctly and baking up the perfect cake for your parent’s anniversary or best friend’s birthday is one of the best feelings ever.
Here are few of the simplest steps that will allow you to bake the yummiest of cakes.
Ingredients are extremely important and so are the appropriate measurements you may need them in. The most common things which you may be needing for baking a easy homemade cake are just 1 cup of butter, 1 cup of sugar, pinch of salt, 2 tsp of vanilla extract, 5 eggs and two cups of cake flour.
You need to have a good idea of settling the right temperature in the oven for the baking to occur rather than overheating or under heating the above. The right temperature to be put from the oven is 325 degree Fahrenheit. You want to preheat the oven in that temperature.
This is chiefly done so the cake does not get stuck on the skillet when it’s getting baked. Hence it’s always recommended to grease the pan, rather deep pans with the butter in order to prevent the cake to get messed up by becoming dry.
Now comes the most important step where the principal ingredients will need to be blended and beaten together to find the creamy mix for the cake. Here you will need to mix the sugar and butter together in a mixing bowl and combine them for as long as needed to find the fluffy and buttery mixture.
This concludes the second last part of preparing the batter of the cake where you add the eggs one by one and keep beating once you crack in each egg so that it blends with the butter and sugar mixture which you have already mixed up before. You want to continuously keep on beating the whole mix until and unless all of the eggs are completely mixed with the full batter and it looks like a smooth and plain mixture of all of the ingredients added.
• FINALLY THE ONE THAT IS GOING TO BAKE THE CAKE
Flour is the vital ingredient. As you pour the flour little by little at a time ensure to keep stirring your mix simultaneously. Do not over blend it, simply combine it right to your flour to get properly blended slowly and giving the appropriate texture into the batter. Stir for as long as it takes and then quit mixing it when all of the flour is poured and blended to perfection.
• POUR AND GET IT BAKED
Now once the difficult part is over that’s preparing the batter to get the cake, then pour the mix into the pan which you had previously greased. You’d pre heated the above so now set the pan in the oven and get it baking for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes are over and you insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake and it comes out clean, this is your cue to know that the cake is perfectly baked for you to eat it today. Take it out and enjoy eating!
