I'm not a baker and confectioner. Generally against cakes. The family does not share such beliefs, often he asks for something for tea.
Cakes, by the way, for a long time treated me the same way? as I said to him - that is sharply negative. Biscuits on any prescription obtained crooked, uneven risen, doughy. Some of them even managed to turn green... Why - do not ask, do not understand to this day (they were green just as doughy and not risen locations).
Gradually, however, I managed to find a recipe for sponge cake, which has agreed to be friends with me. He was... pancakes flour. Not the easiest way, but tasty.
- 175 grams of butter
- 175 grams of sugar required to fine
- 3 large eggs (do not change in the 4 small, not laminate)
- 175 grams of flour pancake
, Beat the butter and sugar, gradually introduce one egg. Add the flour, mix and divide the dough into two cakes. Look like that's it. Oh yeah, we send in an oven preheated to 170 degrees. Baking missing 25 minutes.
But that is not all. My observations:
Pans should be avoided. Detachable form is better warmed, they are found to be cakes, beautiful-baked.
If you do not use paper, in order to pave the shape, then lubricate it better not creamy and vegetable oil (a paradox, yes). By butter biscuit sticks harder. For margarines, too. Probably due to the greater amount of moisture in them? Although I do not know.
A clockwork better waking mixture of fine flour and sugar mixed in a ratio of one to one. So, to make it all clung to the entire mold from the inside, and the rest - to shake.
Hollow in the middle of the cake should be done noticeable. Otherwise the hump come out strong.
Cool cake in the form of long - it is impossible. A maximum of five minutes. Then unzips it, remove the cake from the bottom and put on the grill. If you use paper, it is necessary to remove only the cooled biscuit.
Oh yeah, before I forget, if at that moment, when you are driven into the egg batter, clumps are formed, it is possible to advance a bitter sigh: cake really does not rise! So be careful ...
