Why is Vanilla the best flavour?
Vanillin is the scent element that we are all familiar with. Vanillin has a floral, sweet, creamy aroma that we adore. Vanilla birthday cake is a widely common universal cake flavour and loved by many. Vanilla bean pods, Vanilla Extract, and Vanilla Paste are all examples of vanilla. On the other hand, vanilla is found in almost anything that has a sweet flavor or aroma. Dairy and non-dairy milks, yogurts, ice creams, pastries, and custards are just a few examples.
Here's how to make the softest, fluffiest vanilla cake you've ever had!
- 5 Egg Yolks
- 1g Salt
- 50g Castor Sugar
- Meringue - 5 Egg Whites + 70g Castor Sugar
- 90g All-Purpose Flour
- 2g Baking Powder
- 50g Vegetable Oil
- 50g Milk
Step 1: Mix 5 egg yolks, salt, castor sugar in a bowl till light pale color and foamy. This is a very important step to achieve soft and fluffy birthday cake.
Step 2: Whip the meringue! Add 5 egg whites and castor sugar into a mixer till soft peak. Whipping the meringue until it reaches a soft peak allows the proteins to strengthen their flexibility, allowing them to take in more air and eventually develop more volume.
Step 3: In the same bowl, fold the egg yolk mixture and the meringue mixture until just combined. Make sure the cake foundation mixture isn't overfold or the cake may flatten.
Step 4: Mix in all the dry ingredients (flour and baking powder) into the same bowl. Remember to sift them thoroughly to prevent any lumps on your birthday cake.
Step 5: Mix both oil and milk into a bowl. Then take some cake mixture into the oil-milk bowl to ensure that all liquids are captured and added to the final cake base mixture. Fold in with the remaining cake mixture and divide equally among three cake tins. Ensure it is mixed well and no residue of flour can be seen.
Bake in a preheated oven for 170 degree, 30 minutes or till use the toothpick test. Toothpick is inserted in the center to come out clean, indicating that the crumb is fully set and no excess moisture remains.
