Have your cake and eat it too
Words by Georgia Green
When it comes to baking, there is very little trickery. All it takes is practice, precision and patience. My top secrets to baking will guarantee your bakes will be perfect every time, and most importantly, they are super easy to follow. And don’t worry if you want a few more baking tips, you can head over to my site Georgia Cakes for some inspiration.
Must have baking ingredients
The first (and most important) secret comes down to the ingredients. It’s easy to feel less guilty when eating a cake containing reduced fat ingredients, however it is the fat that is needed in order to complete the equation within baking. After all, it is a scientific formula.
Some ingredients should be held back more than others. Margarine, for example, contains more than ten ingredients (some of which I cannot even pronounce) whereas butter is made of 100% milk. For me, it’s more appealing to use the ingredient that is the most ‘real’, resulting in a more naturally tasting, and fresher cake.
How to cream butter and sugar
When it comes to cake recipes, creaming butter and sugar together is the most common method used to achieve the ‘light and fluffy texture’- but guess what? It’s in fact down to the raising agent added to the mix that enhances its lightness. The main reason we cream the two ingredients together is to ensure it’s all mixed in.
With this being said, another secret of mine is that I always melt the butter before mixing. This may seem a little strange at first, but it’s the same amount of fat needed in a cake, minus all the lumps and bumps.
