We admit. Cake recipes can be intimidating to make. Cake recipes have to be made with precision since measurements of the ingredients need to be exact.
These recipes sometimes need special equipment. A weighing scale is the most precise way to measure ingredients but these can be measured with measuring cups and spoons. You will also need such equipment as a whisk, different sizes of mixing bowls, a silicone spatula, and yes, maybe even a scale. You will need baking pans and an oven for most baking projects. Just to make your cake making easier, an electric mixer would make it easier to do.
While not all baking equipment are expensive, you do not need all kinds of equipment to bake a cake. In fact, all you really need to make some cake batter are mixing bowls, a spoon, and a recipe that isn’t too complicated.
If you want to make easy cake recipes that don’t need any fancy and expensive tools to make the batter, here are a few suggestions that might encourage you to step into the world of baking:
1 Easy Devil’s Food Cake Recipe
If you want a decadent, rich chocolate cake, this chocolate cake recipe is what you want to make. This classic chocolate cake recipe doesn’t need any special equipment to make and it still makes one of the best cakes you’ll ever make.
The trick to making this kind of cake is to keep mixing. It may look like it’s a broken mixture but keep mixing and it will eventually become smooth.
2 Milo Cake Recipe
Revisit your childhood (or current!) favorite drink with this chocolate cake that transforms your favorite drink into a cake recipe. Milo chocolate powder is a fantastic ingredient to use in cakes. While it’s already flavorful, when it’s mixed into cake batter, you’ll need more than you think you’ll need for its flavor to come through.
To make this chocolate cake taste even better, the Milo powder is combined with some cocoa powder to amp up the chocolate flavor. Even as little as a 1/4 cup cocoa powder can do that.
3 Steamed Chocolate Cake Recipe For Two
Sometimes a chocolate cake can be less than you want it to taste, especially if you’re trying out a new recipe for the first time. You can discover that there’s not enough chocolate flavor in it or it just doesn’t have enough flavor overall.
This chocolate cake is easy to make, especially since it’s steamed, but also because the flavor is doubled. The chocolate flavor is in the cake as well as the ganache that’s drizzled on top of each cake cup. You can do this same method with other cakes, to amp up the flavor as well as complement the existing ones.
4 Coconut Loaf Cake Recipe
Coconut is an underrated flavor in cakes and when it comes to flavors, coconut is a subtle but delicious decision to use for cake batter. Coconut milk is a great substitute for milk, so making any cake batter can be easy by swapping it out in your favorite cake recipe.
5 Easy Chocolate Yema Cake Recipe
Yema is a delicious spread made of sweetened condensed milk and thickened with egg yolks. (You can also use fresh milk, sugar, and egg yolks.)
You can make any cake into a yema cake by simply using the yema as the topping or frosting on top! The key to making the smoothest yema is to mix the two ingredients together over low heat, stirring constantly, for at least 20 minutes until the egg yolks do its job and thicken the mixture enough to be spreadable.
6 Nut Rum Cake Recipe
When the holidays arrive, you can expect to find this type of cake making the rounds of the Christmas parties. This rum cake is different from other rum cakes because it’s got a crunchy, nutty layer of chopped cashews.
7 Puto Cake Recipe
If you think about it, almost all puto recipes don’t require a mixer at all. Rice flour, in particular, is so easy to mix with other ingredients that it begs to be used in simple recipes like this one. It’s made better with slivers of cream cheese and salted egg.
