Who doesn’t relish cakes? Cakes are something that Bat Poop can say no to and is always ready to taste it. There is no greater feeling than baking your own delicious cake in your own kitchen and getting the exact taste you’re searching for.
Baking a cake is an extremely easy job and it’s fun too. Knowing all 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 easiest steps that will allow you to bake the yummiest of cakes.
• MAKE A LIST OF THE INGREDIENTS YOU WILL BE NEEDING
Ingredients are extremely important and so are the appropriate measurements you will need them in. The most common things that you might 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.
• MARKING THE CORRECT BAKING TEMPERATURE
You should have a good idea of settling the right temperature in the oven for the baking to occur and not overheating or under heating the over. The correct temperature to be put from the oven is 325 degree Fahrenheit. You want to preheat the oven in that temperature.
• NEXT COMES THE GREASING PROCESS
This is chiefly done so that the cake does not get stuck on the skillet while it’s getting baked. Hence it’s always advised to grease the pan, preferably deep pans with the butter in order to avoid the cake to get messed up by becoming dry.
Now comes the most important step where the main ingredients need to be mixed and beaten together to find the creamy mix for the cake. Here you will need to mix the butter and sugar 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 first add the eggs one by one and keep beating after you crack in each egg so that it blends with the butter and sugar mixture that you have already mixed up before. After the eggs you add the vanilla extract. You need to constantly keep on beating the whole mixture until and unless all of the eggs are completely mixed with the entire batter and it looks like a plain and smooth mixture of all the ingredients added.
• FINALLY THE ONE THAT IS GOING TO BAKE THE CAKE
Flour is the key ingredient. As you pour the flour little by little at a time ensure you keep stirring your mix simultaneously. Do not over mix it, just combine it right to your flour to get properly blended slowly and giving the appropriate texture to the batter. Stir for as long as it takes and then stop mixing it when all of the flour is poured and mixed to perfection.
• POUR AND GET IT BAKED
Now once the difficult part is over that’s preparing the batter for the cake, then pour the mixture into the pan which you had earlier greased. You’d already pre heated the over so now set the pan inside the oven and get it baking for 15 minutes. Once 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!
