Bake Delicious Cakes
Chemical bleach in your child's birthday cake? Not when you use King Arthur unbleached cake flour. Other national brands of cake flour use the chemical action of added bleach to produce cakes with an ultra-fine texture and an artificially white color. King Arthur cake flour produces a medium-fine texture cake, moist and flavorful, with absolutely no added chemicals. Bleached cake? Not when you bake with King Arthur.
Tender White Cake
2 3/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached Cake Flour Blend
1 2/3 cups sugar; superfine sugar is best
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
4 large egg whites plus 1 whole large egg
1 cup full-fat vanilla yogurt or 1 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
Mix all of the dry ingredients for 2 minutes on slow speed, to blend and aerate. Add the soft butter and mix until crumbly. Add the egg whites, then the whole egg, beating after each addition to begin building the structure of the cake. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl periodically.
In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt (or milk), with the vanilla and almond extracts. Add that mixture, 1/3 at a time, to the egg mixture. Beat 1 to 2 minutes after each addition, until fluffy, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl. Pour the batter into greased and floured or parchment-lined pans (two 8" or 9" round, one 9" x 13", or 20 to 24 cupcakes).
Bake the cake(s) in a preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes (for 8" or 9" pans); 23 to 26 minutes (for 9" x 13" pan); or 20 minutes (for cupcakes). Remove from the oven, cool, and frost.
Yield: two 8" or 9" cakes, one 9" x 13" cake, or 20 to 24 cupcakes.
