I am not a very good cook, I do not have a lot of experience. But I decided that I wanted to be able to bake cake, and started trying. I wanted to put the products together myself, instead of bying cake-mix that is already made perfect.
I tried three times now, and there does seem to be some progress. The one on the top-left was the second try and the one below the tirth.
The cake rizes, and the color looks ok, the taste was also fine. But the structure was odd, too.. heavy? Not sure what word to use but it seems like that there is not enough air inside. Its too compact.
I was hoping for some advice on this
it would be lots of fun to be able to make a good cake.
The products that I used are:
-150 grams of sugar
-150 grams of self raising flour (I hope I translate it right)
-75 grams of butter
-75 grams of curd (again I hope the translation is right. I mean a type of yoghurt that is more sturdy then yogurt. It was put in the recipe to give the cake a less drie bite and to make the cake less fatty)
-a bit of salt
55 minutes in the oven on 150 degrees (celcius)
What in all of this is wrong? Is the curd causing the problem, or the oven time/temperature, or something else?
