Start with softened butter and then cream it with sugar with an electric hand mixer on medium speed-the friction between the butter and sugar will create little air bubbles in your batter. These air bubbles create steam when baked, and your cakes will come out light and fluffy all the time!


You know that you've creamed your butter well when it turns pale yellow, or almost white, in color. It will also be creamy and shiny in texture. This could take around 6 or up to 8 minutes on an electric hand mixture. Let's get baking!
