The cake batter is made from eggs, sugar and flour, to which fat, milk, various flavors, cocoa, coffee, nuts, raisins and other products can be added. It is usually prepared with baking powders so that it can really acquire the desired appearance.
The cake batter can be plain sponge dough or butter dough. It is important not to get its consistency mixed up - it should be neither liquid nor too thick. Also, never open the oven door while baking the cake, otherwise it will not rise.
You can allow yourself to open it only after about 30 minutes to make sure you haven't burnt the cake. The cooking time depends on the quantity of your batter and the cake is considered ready, when there is no batter left on the toothpick you poked it with.
It is also very important to remember that once the cake is removed from the oven, it should sit for about 10 minutes before being transferred to the serving plate.
