How to bake a tropilite plum premix cake step by step with pictures
Gather all of your materials first. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- 1 pound of cake flour
- Plum cake premix
- 1 and a 1/2 pound sugar
- 1 and a quarter tablespoons cream of tartar
- salt (1/4 teaspoon)
- 1 teaspoon extract vanilla
- a quarter teaspoon of almond extract
- 1/3 cup confectioner's sugar (for the cake's top)
You can get the required ingredients from Tropilite. Here, you can also use the red velvet premix as per your choice.
Add the Plum Cake premix, and water. Mix in a bowl for two minutes at slow speed with a flat blade. To ensure equal mixing, scrape the bowl's sides and center. In a mixing dish, combine 1 cup cake flour and 1/2 cup sugar; set aside.
Continue mixing for 2 minutes at medium speed. Fruits should be added, and the mixture should be run at a slow pace for a minute. Now whisk on high speed until firm. (You can also try liquid whipping cream).
Slowly add the 1 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and beat for another minute. Add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time. After that, take the bowl out of the mixer and whisk in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. You can also look for heavy cream online.
Now take 1 cup of cake flour and combine it with 1/2 cup of sugar. Fill the Tube Cake Pan with batter. Smooth the top of a 10-tube pan or a bunt cake pan that hasn't been oiled. Place in the center of a preheated oven at 325°F. It will take about 50-55 minutes. When the top of the cake is well browned, remove it from the oven.
Turn the cooked cake upside down. Place the baked cake on a wire rack, upside down. If the cake does not unmold, loosen the edges using a spatula. Give 45-60 minutes to the cake for cooling. Sift it over the cake. Using a sifter, lightly sift the confectioner’s sugar over your cake. To make a design on the cake top, you can use a stencil or just sprinkle the confectioner’s sugar on top.
Here you go! Your cake is all set to gobble!
