- Facts on Cake:
The term “cake” is originated from the Old Norse word “kaka”.
Cake is a form of bread or bread like food. Some of the cakes are made using the combination of sugar, eggs, flour, and butter or oil.
A cake is usually enriched by covering it with frosting, or icing, and toppings such as sprinkles. Frosting is often made from powdered (icing) sugar, milk or cream, and often flavorings such as cocoa powder or vanilla extract. Some also use a rolled fondant icing.
Cake is usually the favorite choice of dessert for meals at special occasions specifically anniversaries, weddings, and birthdays. There are a lot of different cake recipes; some are bread-like, some rich and decorative, and many are centuries old.
A special cake flour which is known to be high starch-to-gluten ratio is made from fine-textured, low-protein, soft wheat. Cake flour is likely to produce light, less dense textured cakes. It is often chosen in making cakes that are meant to be soft, light, and or bright white.
A substitute for cake flour can be made by using cornstarch in replace of all-purpose flour or removing two tablespoons from each cup of all-purpose flour. Some recipes clearly state or allow usage of all-purpose flour, particularly if the desired result should be a firmer or denser cake texture.
Yeast cakes are the oldest and are very comparable to yeast breads. These cakes are usually very traditional in form, and includes pastries like babka and stolen.
Cheesecakes are custard pies, with a filling made out from cheese (cream cheese, mascarpone, ricotta, etc.) and have very little flour.
Sponge cakes are often decorated with over-the-top toppings.
Butter cakes are made with a combination of eggs, butter, and baking powder or bicarbonate soda to provide lift and a moist texture.
Some variations of cake are available in the form of cake mixes, where some of the ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and flavoring) are premixed, and the cook needs add only a few of extra ingredients such as eggs, water, and butter or vegetable oil.
While the variety of represented styles is limited, cake mixes offers an easy and readily available homemade choice for chefs who are not professional bakers.
