Works for Me Wednesday – Baking a Cake Tip

April 1, 2009 at 3:00 pm 1 comment


My parents invited us over on Monday evening for dinner. My former youth leaders were in town, so they were also invited, so we could all spend some time together. I decided to bake a cake to take along for the meal. However, I am still relatively new to baking cakes from scratch and don’t have one that works well all of the time. I found a chocolate cake recipe that sounded good, but again, I was hesitant to let other people eat it before I had a chance to try it to make sure it was worth eating.

As I was trying to figure out how to make this work, I came up with a great idea! I greased a custard cup and put some of the batter in there, and baked it next to my cake. If you do this, keep an eye on the custard cup, since it will bake faster than the cake. This allowed me to taste the cake without having to attempt to steal a piece of it out of the pan. The cake wasn’t perfect, but it was good enough to serve others. I will definitely remember to do this in the future, whenever necessary.

    This is a good idea! I like to try new recipes to take to potlucks, but I also don’t want to make everyone gag *L* Thanks for the tip =)
