I baked this today and it came out beautiful! Nice and moist, and texture light and springy, yet sturdy cake. Was very easy to work with the two layers, they held up well. I left them in the pan to cool, but they did stick to the pans. I ran a knife around edges and gently lifted inside edges around the cake, then inverted the cake and it finally released with only a few edges stuck. I was able to put the edges back on the cake. I think next time I'd flip onto wire wrack after 15 minutes then let cool the rest of the way. Excellent cake though! I'll definitely bake it again and again.
How much will this make?
This is cool..It would be nice if you could mention the preparation time also :)
1 1/2 sticks of butter - may I know what that is in terms of grams?
I used to have problems with cakes sticking in the pans. But since I have found the recipe for "pan release" I haven't had any trouble at all. Use this instead of purchasing the already mixed/spray can. All it takes is, equal parts of shortening, oil and flour. I put this in a bowl and use a hand blender and mix til it is smooth, store in the fridge. Use a pastry brush to coat the pans with this mixture. You will be amazed.
You have made a very nice cake. Keep up the good work. There is a cake competition just fit you. Friends of all language are welcome to join. Email a photograph of your cake and a short recipe to No fee needed. Good luck (Deadline is 22 Dec 2014)
