How To Bake A Cake In 8 Simple Steps by Yuneek(f): 4:26pm On Aug 14, 2018

Baking a cake could be tiring especially for some amateur who probably want to do it all by themselves in a bid to learn something new.

But there are certain challenges which such persons might just keep bumping into but this article will allay all your fears and make it very much easier for you to bake your own homemade cake at home with little or no hassles.

First Things First, here are the ingredients you will be needing to make your yummy cake (This is largely dependent on the size of the cake you would want to bake though):

4 cups (500g) Flour
12 Eggs
4 sticks (500g) Butter (NOT Margarine)
400g (2 cups) Granulated Sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
½ cup brandy

Tools You Will Need

An oven.

Cake mixer.

Kitchen scale.

Sieve (Colander).

Egg Whisk.

Bowls.

Spatulas.

Cake Pan: 10 inches in diameter and 2.5 inches deep.

Step By Step Recipe

Step 1

Cream the butter and the sugar

Put the soft butter and the granulated sugar into the mixer and start creaming. In case you do not have a cake mixer, you can actually alternate with a mortar and a pestle or a bowl and a spatula (Trust me, it is not as easy as it is spelt o). If you are using an automatic cake mixer, ensure you read the manual to understand how best to use it as what works for Mixer A might not work for Mixer B (depends largely on the product yeah).

You will know you have achieved a well-creamed sugar/butter mix when the mixture looks whiter than the butter you started with, softer (it should be able to drop from a spoon) and also, you can barely feel the granulated sugar when you taste the creamed butter and sugar although some sugar could be as stubborn as me, Lol.

Step 2

Grease your Cake Pan

Grease your cake pan with butter and add some flour into the greased pan. Be sure the flour touches every part of the pan and then pour out the flour. This is to enable the cake to come out freely after it must have been baked.

Step 3

Whisk Your Eggs

Break all the eggs into a big bowl and whisk them to a smooth blend. If you are using an egg whisker, then perfect, but in case you like to suffer a little extra, you can use a fork and beat after breaking the eggs into a plate.

Step 4

Mix your creamed butter/sugar with the egg

Mix until you have achieved a smooth fluffy blend of the creamed butter/sugar and the eggs. This could be both boring and interesting depending on what you like on a normal day.
