The Process of Cake Making
Baking a cake is a fun and simple process that can be done by practically anyone. Before you begin you will need several ingredients. They include cake mix, water, cooking oil, eggs, cooking spray, and cake frosting. You will also need the following supplies: a large bowl, mixer, spoon, knife, two round nine inch pans, cooling rack, and a cake pan. The delectable and scrumptious cake will be your reward for following the steps necessary in this process.
The first thing you should do is preheat your oven to 350°F. Make sure to check inside the oven for any pans that may be stored inside. Depending on your oven, it could take about fifteen minutes to preheat. While you are waiting for the oven to preheat, you should spray the inside of your pans with cooking spray and begin to prepare the cake batter.
In a large bowl, combine your cake mix with 1 cup of water, 1/3 cup of cooking oil, and 3 eggs. Using your mixer, mix ingredients on low speed for one minute or until moistened. Then you should increase the mixing speed to medium and beat for two more minutes. After mixing the ingredients, pour the batter evenly into the round pans. Use a spoon to scrape any additional batter from the bowl into the pans.
Bake the cake at 350°F for twenty-seven to thirty-one minutes, depending on your oven. Be sure to keep a watchful eye on your cake while it is baking. It is important to keep the atmosphere in the kitchen calm and quiet while the cake is baking so that the center of the cake won’t collapse. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. When the cake is done, you can remove it from the oven and turn the oven off.
Next you need to place the pans on a cooling rack for fifteen minutes. After fifteen minutes have passed, run a knife around the edge of the pans to make sure the cake can easily be removed.
