Who doesn’t like cakes? Cakes are something that no one can say no to and are always ready to taste it. There is no better feeling than baking your own delicious cake in your own kitchen and getting the exact flavor you are looking for.
Baking a cake is an extremely easy task and it is also fun. Knowing all the steps correctly and baking the perfect cake for your parents’ birthday or best friend’s birthday is one of the greatest feelings ever.
Here are some of the easiest steps to help you bake the finest of cakes.
• Make a list of the ingredients you want
Ingredients are very important and so are the correct measurements you need them in. The most common things you may need to bake a simple homemade cake are 1 cup butter, 1 cup sugar, pinch of salt, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 5 eggs and 2 cups cake flour.
• LABELING OF CORRECT REAR TEMPERATURE
You need to have a clear idea of setting the right temperature in the oven so that the baking takes place and not overheat or during heating. The correct temperature to set in the oven is 325 degrees Fahrenheit. You need to preheat the oven to that temperature.
• NEXT COMES THE GREATER PROCESS
This is mostly done so that the cake is not stuck to the baking pan while it is being baked. Therefore, it is always advisable to lubricate the pan, preferably deep pans with the butter to prevent the cake from getting messy by drying.
• MIXTURE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP
Now comes the most important step where the main ingredients need to be mixed and kneaded together to get the creamy mixture to the cake. Here, mix butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and mix them as long as it takes to get the fluffy and buttery mixture.
• THE EGGS AND VANILLA ARE ADDED
This finishes the last part of the preparation of the dough of the cake, where you first add the eggs one at a time and continue to beat after cracking in each egg, mixing it with the sugar and butter mixture, that you have already mixed together before. After the eggs, add the vanilla extract. You must keep beating the whole mixture constantly until and unless all eggs are completely mixed with the whole dough and it looks like a regular and smooth mixture of all the added ingredients.
• Finally, the one who has to bake the cake
Flour is the key ingredient. As you pour the flour little by little at a time, make sure you continue to stir your mixture at the same time. Do not mix it too much, just mix it properly so that the flour mixes slowly properly and gives the dough the right texture. Stir as long as it takes, then stop mixing it as all the flour is poured and mixed to perfection.
• Pour and get it baked
Once the hard part is over preparing the dough for the cake, pour the mixture into the pot you had previously greased. You had already preheated the oven, so put the pan into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. When 15 minutes are over and you insert a toothpick in the center of the cake and it comes out clean, it’s your queue to know that the cake is perfectly baked so you can eat it now. Take it out and enjoy eating!
