Well, 2011 is well on its way to becoming 2012 and before that happens it is time for us to get back to work.
We have a few emails from our bed & breakfast guests who read Bettina’s Blog.
Let’s start the New Year with a great suggestion for baking.
“I was in the kitchen one morning when my host family was making breakfast. They baked a wonderful sour cream breakfast cake. I would love to have the recipe.
Although the cake was really good they had a hard time getting it out of the cake pan. It eventually came out, but not as pretty as they had hoped. I gave them a suggestion, which I decided to also send to the blog. It is one which has served me well over many years – and I never have and never will use that spray stuff you see being put into baking pans on the cooking shows.
When I start to bake a cake, the first thing I do is oil the pan with organic butter and put it in the refrigerator until I have finished with the cake batter and it is ready to be poured into the pan. I have never had a problem getting my cakes out of the pan. Once out of the oven, let the cake cool about five minutes (no longer) and then put a plate over the cake pan invert it and the cake will come right out of the pan.”
Ed. Note: We tried this several times and it worked beautifully. Needless to say we passed this suggestion on to the bed & breakfast host family who was mentioned as having a hard time getting their cake out of the pan.
