Baking cake is an art and it is essential to pick the right pan we need for baking. I have always used round pans for making a perfectly layered cake and have always found that the round pans are convenient and easy to use. They are also easily available in the market in all sizes you need. Generally, round pans help make layered cakes that have a high demand during wedding seasons. However, these pans are available in materials like metal, ceramic, glass, silicone, non-stick, and enameled-metal. I recommended you should use a heavy gauge aluminized steel which has a patented silicone coating and it should be PTFE, PFOA, and BPA-free.
Since I have used round pans plenty of time in my life, I would like to share my experience with you on how to use a round cake pan for making a delicious cake. You will love to enjoy with your family also do share your feedback; we would love to hear from you of how your cake turned out.
How to use a round cake pan
Baking a layered cake is time taking and takes a lot of your efforts but with the help of round cake pans, things have got on a bit easier. Every baker has a fear of the cake sticking into the pan which causes the cake to burn and smell terrible irrespective of whatever shape or material of pan you use. However, parchment papers have come to our rescue each time because greasing the pan is just not enough. The first thing you should do is get all the ingredients ready for baking the cake and make sure they are fresh or you can check the labels on the package before buying them. Then, in a container mix all-purpose flour, eggs, milk, vanilla essence, oil, baking powder, baking soda, oil, and powdered sugar to form a batter or do as per your recipe demands, I have also baked cakes with curd instead of milk which you can find at your nearest Asian stores. Keep in mind that baking soda will help your cake to rise. Don’t make the batter too runny or too thick because that not give you the desired results you want. After mixing you can set it aside and bring the round pan into play which has high straight sides and a flat bottom. But before you pour the batter into the pan don’t forget to thoroughly grease the pan or else your cake will stick to the bottom or use parchment paper. Lining parchment paper on the bottom of the round pan is a convenient way to bake cake ensuring the cake not to stick to the pan. Buying a perfectly cut round parchment paper can be expensive but you can always cut them in the exact size your pan needs. Now, pour the batter into the pan and gently tap it to make sure there are no air bubbles left in the batter. Preheat and set the temperature as your recipe demands and you get the perfect round cake with the help of your round pan, to enjoy with your family.
It is very important to grease your pan or use a parchment paper in your round pan to get a desirable cake with a perfect bottom as an outcome.
