Step 4: Prep the pans
If your recipe calls for greasing and flouring the pan, use a paper towel or pastry brush to evenly spread shortening or butter (or nonstick cooking spray) on the bottom, corners, and 1 inch up the sides of the pan. Sprinkle a little flour into the pan; tap the pan so the flour covers all greased surfaces. Tap out any extra flour into the sink.
If a recipe calls for lining the pan with waxed or parchment paper, place the pan on the paper and trace around its base with a pencil. Cut just inside the traced line; line the bottom of a lightly greased pan with the paper, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Unless otherwise specified, grease and flour the lined pan as directed.
Tip: For chocolate cakes, use cocoa powder instead of flour to coat the pan. Cocoa powder prevents sticking and enhances the cake's flavor, and traces of it won't be obvious after the cake is turned out of the pan.
Store cakes are not as good as homemade cakes. The process of making cakes is very simple. The cook will need to know three things. The ingredients, the blending process and the time it takes to be fully baked. The ingredients can vary between the different types of cakes and the slight change in the quantity of each ingredient can affect the taste of the cake. www.wikihow.com/Bake-a-Cake stated that the ingredients are “3/4 cup of butter. 3/4 cup of cocoa powder, 3/4 cup of flour which make the cake very soft, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 cup of sugar, 3 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and half a cup of butter milk”. Butter is very important because it makes all the ingredients hold together. Cocoa powder gives the taste of chocolate.
Mix the ingredients together until they become as wikihow mentioned “thick and smooth”. The sugar then will be added then cocoa powder, flour, and vanilla. The mixer will start until all the ingredients have a united colour which will be the brown. Then it is ready to go into the microwave oven. It will take about 45 minutes to be fully baked and ready to be eaten. The oven should be hot and the door should never be opened until the baking is finished. Then the cake should be get shaped into pieces and served with some hot chocolate and cream. The process of making a cake can be different from one person to another and from one type of cake to another type of cakes. Cake making is very interesting and simple and can put smile on everybody face, also it does not take time to be finished.
