Chapter One

Cake Basics

When it's time to celebrate, think cake! Whether the occasion's an anniversary, a birthday, a wedding, or perhaps a family reunion picnic, there's a cake in this collection that's perfect. There are classics like Angel Food and Pound, favorites like Banana and Carrot and fashionable newcomers like Molten Chocolate Cakes and Tres Leches Cake. And best of all, these recipes take the guesswork out of baking cakes and put the confidence in. So bake up a cake from our treasure trove of recipes, then stand back and wait for the compliments!

PICKING THE RIGHT PAN

Use the size of pan called for in a recipe. To determine a pan's size, measure the length and width from inside edge to inside edge. If it's too big, your cake will be flat and dry; too small and it will form a peak or overflow the pan.

Use shiny pans, which reflect heat, for tender, light brown crusts.

Dark pans or pans with dark nonstick coating absorb heat easier than shiny pans, so baked goods may brown more quickly. Manufacturers may suggest reducing the oven temperature by 25°F to compensate for this.

Fill cake pans half full. To determine how much batter novelty pans (heart or star shape, for example) can hold, fill the pan with water, then measure the water; use half that amount of batter. Extra batter? Make cupcakes!

If you have only one 12-cup muffin pan, cover and refrigerate the remaining batter while the first batch ofmuffins is baking. Then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 or 2 minutes to the bake time.

MIXING CAKES

Mixing the batter with the recommended ingredients and techniques helps to turn out a great cake time after time. Here are a few tips for sweet success:

Cake recipes in this cookbook were tested with electric handheld mixers. If you're using a heavy-duty stand mixer, be sure to follow the manufacturer's directions for the speed setting because overmixing the batter causes tunnels or a sunken center.

The stick form of butter or margarine is recommended. You may use vegetable-oil spread sticks that have at least 65 percent fat, but the batter consistency may be thinner.

Vegetable-oil spreads with less than 65 percent fat, reduced-fat butter or any tub of whipped product are not recommended when making cakes. Because they contain more water and less fat, cakes will be tough and wet or gummy.

STORING CAKES

Follow these tips so your cake keeps fresh and delicious until the last piece is eaten.

Unfrosted cakes: Cool completely before covering and storing to keep the top from becoming sticky.

Cakes with a creamy powdered sugar frosting: Place in a cake taker or loosely cover with foil, plastic wrap or waxed paper. Store at room temperature.

Cakes with White Mountain Frosting (page 117), or any egg white-based frostings: Best when served the same day you make them. When stored longer, meringue frostings tend to weep where they touch the cake. To help lessen this effect, store leftovers in a cake taker with the lid placed on loosely or under a large upside-down bowl with a knife slipped under the edge so air can get in.

Cakes with whipped cream toppings, cream fillings or cream cheese frostings: Place in a "cake taker" or loosely cover with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate 3 to 5 days.

Cakes with very moist ingredients like chopped apples, applesauce, shredded carrots or zucchini, mashed bananas or pumpkin: Refrigerate, especially during humid weather or in humid climates. If stored at room temperature, mold can grow quickly.

Shortening Cakes

Shortening cakes are made with butter, margarine or shortening, flour, eggs, a liquid and baking powder or baking soda.

BAKING SHORTENING CAKES

Place oven rack in the middle position. Place pans in the center of the rack. Arrange round cake pans so they don't touch, leaving at least 1 inch of space between pans and sides of the oven. When making a recipe that uses three round pans, refrigerate batter in third pan if not all pans will fit in the oven at one time; bake third pan separately.

Grease and flour pans as recommended in each recipe. Greasing with solid vegetable shortening is recommended. Butter, margarine and vegetable oil are not recommended for greasing.

COOLING AND REMOVING SHORTENING CAKES

Cool cakes that will not be removed from the pan or pans on a wire rack until completely cool.

Cool cakes that will be inverted, like round, fluted or tube pan cakes, in their pans on wire racks for 5 to 10 minutes.

To remove a cake from the pan, insert a knife between the cake and the pan and slide it around the side to loosen the edge. Put a wire rack on top of the cake. Holding both the rack and the pan firmly, flip them over and lift the pan off the cake. Flip again onto another rack so the cake can cool top side up. Cool completely on wire racks.

German Chocolate Cake

PREP: 30 min BAKE: 40 min COOL: 1 hr 10 min 12 SERVINGS

Samuel German, an employee of the Baker's chocolate factory, developed a sweet chocolate in 1852.

Serve these cakes while they're still warm. Cut into them and a delicious rich chocolate center flows out. They make the ideal company dessert!

    Love this Basic Cookbook!

    My mother gave me an older edition 10 years ago when I went to college, and it taught me how to cook. After my kids finally tore it apart, my husband bought this to replace it, and it's even better now! The recipes are updated and tastier, there's more info on the ingredients, techniques, and measurements. The pictures are better and explain more. This should be The basic cookbook in anyone's home kitchen. Love it!

    Great Cookbook

    I've been using an old Betty Crocker's Cookbook for the past 27 years, and this was a wonderful update to it. Definitely my favorite everyday cookbook, and one that I'd buy for nephews and neices as they move out on their own, and start to cook for themselves.

    Great Basic Reference Cookbook

    My BC Cookbook (the binder) has been a great help to me, especially for the basics. How long do you cook potatoes? What does a hubbard squash look like? How do I cook patty pan squash? What is the conversion from this measurement to that? What does it mean to cut meat "across the grain"? The recipes are easy to follow, and don't call for obscure ingredients. When my daughter moved out and started calling asking me these cooking questions, I would have to say, "Let me check with Betty". So, I ordered her a BC Cookbook. She loves it for the same reasons. The newer addition even has one of her favorite recipes in it: Cheeseburger Pie!

    not enough pictures

    When I browse through a cookbook, it is the pictures of different dishes that inspire me to try new recipes. It seems with every edition, there are less pictures. I would rather pay a little more and have the pictures.
