Are you craving to bake your own homemade cake? Well, if you are, this is how you can do it. By simply following this guide, you will be able to come up with a batch of cupcakes that are absolutely scrumptious and that taste like the homemade ones you often eat in the restaurants. Let us check out this simple recipe.
Begin by preparing all the things needed for your homemade cake. You will need baking pans, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, butter, shortening or butter, vanilla, and flour. These are the most common ingredients that you would need to create a delicious, homemade cake. You can also opt to use other types of cake mix if you are looking forward for a more authentic cake taste.
In order to make your homemade cake taste better, you need to bake it for three months. If you want to bake it for only an hour, the flavor will not be as pronounced as when you bake it for three months. The reason for this is because baking takes time and you should also consider all the factors that can affect the baking process such as your oven’s temperature, the bake time, and the baking time of the ingredients. It might take you more time to bake a simple cake mix compared to a sponge cake but both have the same importance in the event that you want to satisfy your baking cravings.
You must first of all grease or oil your baking pan well so that the bottom will not stick. Use canned or fresh fruit juice if you do not have fresh fruit juice. Add a little bit of vegetable oil or softened butter. Then, mix in your prepared cake mix. In addition, you may want to add some milk or buttermilk to moisten your batter so that the cake mix will form a smooth batter.
It is important to use the right kind of flour. There are many types of flour out in the market. However, you can still choose which one is the best for you. Flour which contains yeast tends to rise more. Furthermore, you can use any type of bread flour, such as whole wheat flour or white bread flour to make homemade cakes.
Next, you should consider the ingredients which can change the taste of the cake and the frosting. Some of these are vegetable shortening and butter. You can also add the powdered sugar to give your homemade cake mixture the rich taste. Meanwhile, the cocoa powder can be used to make dark chocolate frosting. It can also enhance the richness of the cake.
In order to achieve the desired taste, the texture and consistency should also be carefully considered. For instance, for meringue recipes, egg whites are usually involved. Thus, it is imperative that you whisk the egg whites until they are very soft. This will result in the perfect texture and therefore, the most delightful taste of homemade meringue.
When preparing the basic ingredients, all you need is about a cup of whole milk, three egg whites, two teaspoons vanilla extract, approximately half a cup of sugar, and a pinch of salt. You can also adjust this recipe depending on what your family likes. However, one tip that experts recommend is to always use a pastry shell. This is because the shell can help you in beating the egg whites and sugar properly. It will also prevent you from cooking the entire contents inside the pan.
The next recipe is the chocolate cake. This time, you will be using the unsweetened variety of chocolate. In order to add a richer taste, you can add a pinch of dried fruit, a teaspoon of cocoa powder, and a half a cup of packed dark chocolates. Bring the sugar and the milk to a boil and then stir in the chocolates.
The last recipe is the traditional yellow cake mix. This time, you will be using the powdered and flavoring paste. However, do not worry if the taste is a bit bitter than usual. All you have to do is add a pinch of salt, a half a cup of sugar, and approximately half a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Once you have baked the cake, all you have to do is frost it using a pastry bag or a pastry shell. Once you have frosted it, you can now add the decorations. Icing is optional. Simply use fresh or dry ingredients to make your homemade cake mix taste great and satisfy your craving.
