Temperature

Ensure butter, eggs, and any dairy are at room temperature for smooth incorporation and even baking.

Prep Your Pan Properly

Ingredients Accurately

Follow precise measurements for flour, sugar, and leavening agents to achieve the right texture and rise.

Mixing Techniques

Cream butter and sugar thoroughly for a light and fluffy texture before adding other ingredients.

Baking Time

Preheat your oven to the correct temperature and monitor baking time closely to avoid under- or overcooking.

Cooling and Storage

Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Store cooled cake in an airtight container.

Variations and Additions

Experiment with different flavorings such as vanilla extract, citrus zest, or almond extract for unique tastes.
