Quick Answer: When baking a cake What do you mix first?

In what order should you mix cake ingredients?

The usual method is a third of the flour, half the milk, a third of the flour, the remaining milk, and finally the remaining flour; it’s helpful to scrape the bowl midway through this process. Adding flour and liquids alternately ensures all the liquid (usually milk) will be thoroughly absorbed into the batter.

What goes first dry or wet ingredients?

Well, yes. BUT whether you are making cookies, muffins, cake, or pancakes, the general rule of baking is that dry ingredients should be combined together thoroughly in one bowl BEFORE you add the wet ingredients.

How many minutes should I bake a cake?

Bake until the cakes are lightly golden on top and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer to racks and let cool 10 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the pans and turn the cakes out onto the racks to cool completely.
