Everybody deserves cake. And cake is the perfect treat to celebrate with - whether your celebration is a birthday, a Friday, or something super big and special.
I believe that just because a cake recipe is "easy" doesn't mean it isn't special and delicious. A simple homemade cakes that are baked with love are better and more special than anything that comes from a box. And these cake recipes are anything but boring and basic.
I have collected and created the best simple cake recipes with flavors around the world to share with you. My goal is that there will be no Pinterest fails here - these simple cake recipes are tried and true and meant to be shared with those you love. And they are simple and easy enough that kids can help you bake them, which means they are perfect for beginner bakers, too.
Tips for making the best homemade cakes:
- Use room temperature ingredients. Its all about chemistry. When your ingredients are at room temperature, they create an emulsion that traps air, which expands during baking and creates soft and fluffy texture.
- Don't overmix. After you cream the butter and sugar, you want to add the rest of the ingredients and mix until just barely combined. The more you mix, the tougher the crumb of the cake will be.
- Don't overbake. Baking them too long makes a cake dry.
