How Can I Get My Cake To Turn Out As Perfect As Possible?

Tips For Baking Cake

Cake baking is a cooking pastime that occurs in almost every home in America. Here are some tips for baking the perfect cake every time: Always bake cakes on the center rack of your oven. This gives the cake a more even, consistent baking pattern. Always use the right pan size and preheat your oven. The wrong pan size can burn your cake or have it sticking to the sides of the pan. Properly measure all ingredients for the right taste and consistency. Grease cake pans with shortening and then lightly dust them with flour. However, do not grease pans when you are cooking sponge-type cakes.

to keep cake from sticking to bottom of pan (for the perfect cake) sprinkle a little sugar over the flour. Cakes comes out easily.
