How to Make a Delicious Birthday Cake Without Baking Powder

Must Try

Birthday is always a special day for every person. If you make a delicious birthday cake at home for your special one I am sure that the day becomes more special for him or her. I always try to make the day special for my beloved family members. Though making a birthday cake is time-consuming and not so simple, yet when you will see the smiling face of your beloved one that will make you very happy and you will forget all the hard work.

Three main phases of work are involved while making a delicious birthday cake. Those are: Baking the main cake, preparing the buttercream and making the whipped cream. In this recipe, I have discussed the three phases separately. I also made this cake without using baking powder. Believe me, the taste of the cake was delicious and different.

 Process for delicious birthday cake

  • Now you will see the magic. The color will turn into yellowish.
  • Add salt to the mixture and again beat.
  • After that add vanilla powder or essence (whatever you have) to the mixture. Try to use vanilla powder. Remember, most renowned bakery shops use vanilla powder instead of vanilla essence.
  • Then add cornflour to the egg mixture at medium speed.
  • And add all-purpose flour to the mixture at low speed.
  • Add oil to the flour mixture very smoothly with low speed.
  • Grease a spring form cake pan or mold with butter or oil and place a baking sheet or tracing paper into the mold. You can use the spray for greasing the mold.

  • Put the batter into the mold and bake at 160°c for 40-45 minutes.
  • Check the cake inserting into a stick in it. When the stick comes up clean then switch off the oven.
