- Batter will make around 3 x 20cm cake rings with approximately 550-600g in each. Alternatively, batter can also be poured onto a cake tray and cut using a cake ring from the tray once baked. Leftover off-cuts can then be grated and used as decoration over the cake.
- Oil or butter ingredient mix – Sunflower oil generally can be used in place of butter. This may be more cost effective as a cheaper ingredient source.
- Original Velvet cakes are typically prepared using butter. Note that you should add an additional 1 to 1.5 minutes extra mixing time to obtain a similar texture that an oil ingredient cake.
- The mixing table above provides an indication of the likely impact of overwhipping the batter mixture.
- The speed of the mix is important where an initial 1 minute on low speed will mix the recipe ingredients together, then the 2nd applicable higher speed is necessary to obtain the final product structure.
- Mixing equipment can be important for the density of cake sought. If a ‘Palette’ beater is used, this will generally provide a more rigid structure, along with more vivid and darker colours. The Palette beater would also tend to be used at very low speeds.
- If you mix the batter faster or longer, this could lead to undesired results such as the cake crust falling down or there may be a stickiness in the middle of the cake which would appear as though the cake has remained unbaked.
- Moistness of the cake is generally not impacted by differences in the type or mixer beater used (whisk or palette).
