I'm assuming you want to whip up good old-fashioned basic cake mix: The foundation of some of the tastiest cakes in the world.
The following recipe can be used as a basis for a Victoria Sponge, Marble Cake, Sultana Cake, Madiera Cake, Chocolate Sponge Cake and many more.
Firstly, you will need a mixing bowl, a wooden spoon (or an electric whisk if you are lucky enough to own one!), an oven, a cake tin, a sieve and a cooling rack.
So that's the technical stuff out of the way. Food wise, you will need 75g/3oz of soft margarine and 75g/3oz of butter, 200g/8oz of self-raising flour, 175g/7oz of caster sugar, vanilla essence (optional) 3 eggs and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
Preheat the oven to gas mark 3/170°/325°F. Beat the margarine and butter together with the electric whisk/wooden spoon until it's smooth. Add the sugar gradually at one tablespoon full a time to make the mixture light and fluffy. Stir in any essence or food colouring you want to use. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and then keep adding them to the cake mixture a spoonful at a time.
Grease the cake tin and pour the cake mixture into it. Bake for 45-50 minutes at gas mark 4/350F/180C. If further cooking is required then reduce the heat to gas mark 3/325°F/170°C.
To check if the cake is ready, make a fingerprint into the middle of the cake. If it bounces back into shape it is ready!
Leave to cool for 15 minutes, add any icing or decorations if you want...and dig in!
This are all wronge
all you really need is:
(and add some toppings in or if its a chocolate cake add in melted chocolate)
You would need the following ingredients:
Plain flour 2 cups
Baking powder 2 teaspoons
Sugar 1 cup
Oil 1 cup
Milk 1 tablespoon
Eggs, water, flour, baking powder, butter, salt and often I will use applesauce instead of any oil it may suggest. The cake is more moist and does not contain high fat contents. Depending on the type of cake you want to make, some will have vanilla flavoring.
I liked the first answer I read, also I use skim milk instead of water, get vitamins A and D that way, with no addition of fat.
I need to make a cake for my mums birthday TODAY I'm only 12 and I don't know what ingredients I need but I no that you don't use oil in a cake and you don't use 4 eggs you only use 2 could someone help me
It all depends on the type of cake you are making but your basic ingredients would be flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla, shortening to start with.
For sponge cake, the ingredients are:
Sponge cake mix
water according to your texture and amount
whisk the egg, then the flour and the rest.

Eggs flour baking powder water

If you live with someone like my auntie she has none of the ingredients. She is hopeless
Try the all-in-one method. Basically you need 6oz of everything you need to make a cake then whiz it up in the blender/mixer...
