If you want to make moist chocolate cake recipes using recipes that do not call for eggs, beat the yolks until they are very soft. Then add the butter and beat it until light. Beat the egg whites until they are also very soft. Then add the milk and beat it just until combined. You may have to add a little more milk if the mixture seems to be too thin.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together in one bowl and then mix the wet baking ingredients into the same bowl. Add the dry baking ingredients to the wet cake baking ingredients and mix it all until combined. You can start off by adding two or three teaspoons of vanilla to the batter. This will thicken the batter a bit.
For some cake recipes use table salt instead of baking soda. This makes a world of difference in how the cake tastes. Table salt has a much different flavor to it than baking soda. I have never tried using table salt in any of my cake recipes, but someone has sent me a cake recipe using table salt with some wonderful results.
Baking powder can be found at your local grocery store. It is very important to make sure you only purchase the amount of baking powder recommended on the package. The baking powder can make a difference in the finished cake. Too much baking powder in the recipe will make the cake too dry while not having enough can result in a runny cake.
Wet ingredients should be mixed together very slowly. The mixing is not as important as the addition of the dry ingredients. If the mixers or mixer come out of the bowl quickly it means the dry ingredients are combined too quickly. This will result in poor cake placement and the cake will not come out the way it was meant to. Allow the cake to mix thoroughly before adding the wet ingredients.
Once you have finished mixing the wet ingredients, turn the oven on for the recommended time and check the cake. If the cake does not come out the way you expected, give the cake baking time to complete and bake a second time. The second time around, check to see that the cake comes out just as you had designed it. By checking frequently throughout the cake baking process you will catch mistakes early and correct them before the cake is baked.
Check your cake recipe to see what types of ingredients you are using and use the correct one. Many cake recipes call for eggs but may use sugar instead. You want to use the correct sugar to balance the cake recipe. Using powdered sugar will make the cake lighter and will prevent it from going stale if it has not been aged.
When it is all done, remove your cake from the oven and allow it to cool. Once it has cooled, you can frost it according to your design or decorate it however you wish. If you do decide to decorate it, allow your cake baking ingredients to set. Let them sit for one hour before frosting. After this you can frost your cake as you desire.
You may find that the cake baking ingredients require you to add water as you mix them. This is fine as long as you do not use too much water. If you do add too much water it will make the cake sticky. Once you frost your cake, you will have beautiful cakes that were created using the cake baking ingredients that you specified in your recipe.
The most difficult part about cake baking is getting it right the first time. It does not happen overnight and takes practice to get it right each time. Even after years of making cakes you will still have room for improvement. Begin by using the correct cake baking ingredients and by adding in water slowly and watching closely you will get it right.
By taking the time to choose your cake baking ingredients correctly you will be rewarded with a delicious cake that will be loved by all. The cake will taste great and will look beautiful for a long time. Your friends and family will comment on how good it tastes and how beautiful it is. Your cake will rise to the top of any cake eating competition!
