Yum, Yum, everyone likes to eat Cake!
So what is Cake?
Cake is everyones favourite type of dessert. It is usually made to celebrate special occasions or included with gift hampers, however, more often than not it is eaten for morning or afternoon tea.
What are the main ingredients of Cake?
Cakes are made by carefully combining wet ingredients for example milk and eggs together with dry ingredients (like sugar and flour) to make a batter which is then baked in an oven. This general process is known as the muffin method, because they generally are made this way, however much simpler to make.
Just like bread the cakes rise in the oven because of many thousands of air bubbles. As cakes and breads rise in the oven, the air bubbles expand. This is why the cake batter expands in the pan (often to twice its original size).
There are two ways of forming the air bubbles.
The First method is Creamed Fat: These cakes are made with butter or another fat, like vegetable shortening. The fat should not be a liquid or a solid at room temperature; it should feel like playdough. By mixing the sugar with the fat, one creates lots of tiny holes which are filled with very small air bubbles. Most birthday cakes are made this way. Cupcakes are also made this way.
The Second Method is Egg Foam: Egg foam cakes are made by whipping egg whites (which have no fat at all) for a very long time with sugar to create a very delicate and light batter. These cakes are typically much taller, lighter and often spongier than creamed fat cakes. A common example of an egg foam cake is angelfood cake, which can be found at most grocery stores with bakeries. Chiffon cake is another good example.
As you can see these create different types of cakes, however almost every kind of cake uses one of these methods.

I Want to Share With You ~ SOMETHING SPECIAL ~
e-Book I have put together oozing with tried and tested recipes your family and friends will praise you for.
I am a fantastic cook and passionate about cooking vintage and long forgotten handed down recipes.
Well, I came across this VERY, VERY OLD COOK BOOK in a garage sale. They are recipes that come from a long forgotten recipe book on Chocolate, Cocoa, Cakes and Cookies (Biscuits) and other great stuff.
In fact these recipes are over 100 years old! I guarantee you will fall in love with each recipe – I know I did, it was an unexpected “Treasure Trove” of Chocolate Delights!
I sat up for a few nights entranced reading this book carefully from cover to cover. I was so excited about this book, I even asked my long suffering husband, if I should wear white gloves to protect the pages haha.
I feel these irresistible recipes need to see the light of day and deserve to be made with great joy and presented with great pride for your friends and family to enjoy!
I have taken recipes from this very special recipe book, mixed and matched to make this eBook.
I plan to make another 2 books as there are SO MANY recipes to share with you. Each recipe in this e-Book has been test baked by me and I present the recipes as they were originally written and laid out in the book and inserted brackets with modern day meanings by WORDS or WEIGHTS AND MEASURES I feel may have gone out of fashion so a better understanding AND FANTASTIC outcome with these recipes will be enjoyed by all!
Are they good - Yes! Are they lip smacking, more please – Yes!
What more can I say?
How do you put a value on this 23 page book, which has 39 recipes and wonderful old pictures from the original book which allows you to provide the best for people in your life and create that certain ambience that will become life long memories for those who will enjoy your creations.
