INGREDIENTS TO BAKE A PERFECT RED VELVET CAKE AT HOME
Sophie • June 20th, 2019
A red velvet cake is a real baking beauty. This is one of the most fluffy, moist, and creamy bakery delights. The incredible red velvet cake is something that you wish to have on your special occasion. The cake is ideal for turning your special day into a memorable one and also, it is one of the yummiest eggless cakes in Melbourne. Red Velvet Cake is a chocolate cake which is made with cocoa powder and buttermilk. Together these ingredients keep the cake moist, light, and fluffy as well.
Thus, without any delay, let's first see some of the 'hard to ignore' ingredients for the cake. These ingredients would make your cake make your cakes spongy and tasty at home
1. Cake flour:
You can bake a beautiful cake with all-purpose flour or cake flour as well. However, cake flour is better as it makes cake softer and tastier. Cake flour is the best ingredient if you like to bake Corporate and School Cakes at home. You can try cake flour to get the better version of your old baked delights.
2. Oil :
This ingredient assures you a moist sponge. Mostly, cocoa powder and red dye are used for this particular cake. So, you can mix oil with these two ingredients so that it blends well into the cake batter. Oil is the secret star ingredient of all those best cakes in Melbourne. Many bakers prefer oil more than any other substitute. The oil helps the cocoa powder to get dissolved entirely even before being mixed through.
3. Milk with vinegar or buttermilk:
Both vinegar/buttermilk helps to prepare soft and moist red velvet cake. At Ishers, the best bakery Melbourne, we prefer to make our buttermilk. You need to sour full cream milk with 1-2 teaspoon of vinegar before starting.
A slightly acidic batter gives you a good moist and tender cake. It breaks down long and tough strands of gluten. The tartness of buttermilk adds a subtle zest to your cake.
Ingredients mentioned above give you a better cake, but there are some other ingredients also which are equally essential as they are:
· Unsalted butter that too at room temperature
· Caster sugar or you can use fine white granulated sugar
· Cooking oil
· Unsweetened cocoa powder and some extra for dusting
· Red food coloring (liquid only not gel)
· Pure vanilla extract
· White vinegar
· Plain cake flour, or all-purpose/plain flour)
· Baking soda (bicarbonate soda)
· Salt as per your taste
For the Cream frosting:
· Beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla properly until you get smooth lighter in color.
· Blend icing sugar until frosting is light and fluffy (if in case the frosting is too thin, you can add a little bit more icing sugar and start beating again until you get your desired consistency)
