Bake a simple cake from a simple cake mix
simple cake mix from supermarket
step 1: grease the pan
Prepare the pan by generously greasing the inside using a pastry brush or paper towel and solid vegetable shortening. For best results, do not use butter, margarine or liquid vegetable shortening. Spread the shortening so that all indentations are covered.
step 2: flour the pan
Sprinkle about 2 Tablespoons of flour inside the pan and shake so that the flour covers all greased surfaces. Turn pan upside down and tap lightly to remove excess flour. If any uncovered spots remain, touch up with shortening and flour, or use Bake Easyâ„¢ Non-Stick Spray or Cake Release to coat the pan instead of grease and flour.
step 3: Mix the cake as per box instructions then pour batter & bake
Pour batter into pan and place in pre-heated oven.
step 4: cool cake
After cake has baked the specified time, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
step 5: unmold cake
Run a thin knife between the cake and side of the pan. Unmold from pan by placing on wire rack against cake and turning both cooling rack and pan over. Lift pan off carefully.
Step 6: add jam / cream to middle ect...
