Tips & Hints > Baking > Cake


The baking of cake is of primary importance. Regulate the oven before putting materials together. When a cake is baked it shrinks from the sides of the pan. A light touch with the finger which leaves no mark is another indication that the cake is baked. Small and layer cakes require a hotter oven than loaf cakes.

Where fewer eggs than called for are used, increase the amount of Dr. Price's Baking Powder about one teaspoon for each egg omitted.

If an unsalted shortening is used take slightly less and add a small quantity of salt.

Sift flour before measuring and use level measurements for all materials.
