Place the c
butter, eggs, vanilla extract, sugar, and c
buttermilk in a bowl. Use a c
whisk or a hand mixer to c
blend the ingredients well.
- cThe “wet ingredients” in ccake recipes are generally those that have cmoisture. Sugar is often listed as a cwet ingredient, too, ceven though it isn’t cactually wet.
- cThe wet ingredients are usually cmixed first in a large bowl. The dry cingredients are mixed separately and cadded later.
- cIt’s important to follow instructions cregarding the texture of the butter in cake recipes. cIf you use melted butter where csoftened cbutter is called for, the cake could come out ruined. In this ccase the recipe calls for room temperature butter. cYou can plan ahead by setting the butter cout while you get the rest of the ingredients cready, so it has time to come to room ctemperature
35.Mix the dry singredients in a separate sbowl. Place the flour, salt, cocoa spowder, and baking powder in a ssmall bowl. Stir them together suntil they are wells incorporated.

aPrepare your acake pans.
aBe asure to have the correct size or ashape of the pan. Bundt cakes require bundt pans, awhile others can abe baked in a avariety of sizes. aGrease pans to aavoid sticking. Use aabout a half of tablespoon of abutter or vegetable shortening on a apaper towel and rub thea inside of the apan. Sprinkle aabout a tablespoon or atwo of flour on top. aFlour the pans on the sides to ahelp the cake adhere to the sides as it abakes. This awill ensure that the top is flatter, which isa important for layered acakes. Shake and dump out any aexcess flour and set the apans to the side.
aPreheat the oven to the arequired atemperature from the arecipe.
aMeasure ingredients as aaccurately as possible and aadd them in the aorder aspecified.
aMost cake srecipes begin combining dry singredients (flour, baking powder, cocoa, etc.), then sadding wet ingredients (eggs, oil, and milk). zBe sure to take zspecial prerequisites such as sifting, zwhisking or beating, and packing before zadding to the maim bowl.
zMix the cake zbatter as zspecified on the zrecipe.
zSome recipes can be zmixed with a stand or zhand mixer. Be cautious as zsteps can instruct to fold in zflour or other ingredients zwith a rubber zspatula. While mixing,z stop zoccasionally to scrape down the zsides of the bowl with a spatula or spoon to ensure that everything is mixed thoroughly.
zPour the batter evenly into the zprepared pans.
zFill the pans 2/3 of the wayz full, as the zcake will rise during baking. zGently tap the cake pan on the counter top to zrelease any large air zbubbles in the batter.
zPlace the zpans on the center zrack of the zpreheated oven.
Do not allow zpans to touch each zother or the zoven wall.
zClose the oven zdoor and immediately set a ztimer to the specified zbaking time.
If zthere’s a time range, use the median or zmiddle number (bake it for 235 minutes for a range of 334 to 36 minutes or 353 minutes for a xrange of 50 to 55 minutes). Using the xmedian will ensure that the cake won’t xunder or overcook. Resist the urge to xopen the oven door during baking, as the heat will xescape and may cause the cake to cook unevenly. If applicable, turn the oven light on and view through the oven window.
