Useful Tips for Baking a Funfoods Choco Spread Cake

I am happy to share some of the tips followed for easy and successful baking. I guarantee your cake will not be a disaster if you follow them

Make sure the bananas are ripe

There should be many dark brown spots on the banana skin. No green colored skin if it’s a yellow banana. Slightly pressure the banana to check if its soft

Make a coarse Banana paste

You do not blend the bananas in the blender to a smooth paste. It is good to keep the mashed banana coarse. It helps for the good texture of the cake.

Make use of healthy fats

Instead of using some random vegetable oil, you can use the coconut oil, ground nut oil or even unsalted butter. These are healthier options to use in a cake

Mix the batter thoroughly after each ingredient

You make sure to beat the mixture after you add each ingredients to avoid lumps. it also helps each ingredient to mix well with the cake

Avoid usage of sweetened cocoa powder

You don’t need to use the sweetened cocoa powder. Reason being , the ripe bananas and jaggery powder adds the required sweetness to the cake

Make use of healthy sugars

Instead of using refined sugar, you either go for palm sugar or coconut sugar. These are other healthy options for sugar

Enhance taste with Cinnamon

It enhances the taste of your cake. I love the cinnamon taste and its aroma. Its the most important spice in baking

Enhance sweetness with Salt

You need to add a little bit of salt to the any sweet recipes to enhance the sweetness and also the other flavors in the cake

Make sure the cake is baked well by using a toothpick

You can use a tooth pick or a skewer to check if the cake is cooked or not.  Prick the toothpick or the skewer into the cake. If the toothpick or skewer comes out clean, it means cake is baked well

Best way to bake in the Pressure Cooker

Add salt to the bottom of the pressure cooker instead of water is another way to bake the cake. So use water in the Pressure cooker to bake the cake. Because when you use salt, it can many times burn the bottom of the cake.

Use right Microwave utensils – Glass, Ceramic and Microwavable utensils

It’s very important that you never use the metal pan for baking in microwave oven. You need to use the microwavable vessels, glass or ceramic utensils

Store Cake layers in freezer

Freeze the layered cake in plastic wrap in the freezer if you need to store them for more than few days.

Powdered Sugar in frosting should be very fine

Powdered sugar used in the chocolate buttercream frosting must be very fine. It should not be coarse to get silkiest and smoothest buttercream

Frosting should not be watery

Make sure you do not add any liquid to the frosting like flavors. Because the watery buttercream doesn’t sit well on the cake

Avoid risk of melting of the frosting

There is a risk of frosting to melt when kept out on a hot day. Always remove the cake from refrigerator just before you want to use
