About Custard Powder Cake Recipe
I love baking loaf cake more than anything else. Not only because it is easy to make, but it makes a great thing to have as morning breakfast. I am not a big morning person, but i like to enjoy a warm slice of cake in the morning along with a cup of tea, coffee or in my case a cup of green tea.
Loaf cakes are always baked in a loaf pan, whereas other square or round tins are used for other cakes. Even though both cakes and loaf cakes contain similar ingredients, the proportions of flour, fat, sugar, and mixing methods differ and affect the final product.
Loaf cakes are also known as pound cakes because they were
traditionally made with one pound of each of the following ingredients: butter, eggs, flour, and sugar. This cake is made with five ingredients, as I've added some vanilla extract for wonderful flavour.
Ingredients for Custard Powder Loaf Cake Recipe
Custard Powder is a flavoured thickening agent used to make desserts. It is made up of cornflour, table salt, annatto (derived from the achiote tree), and flavouring agents. Vanilla is one of the most commonly used flavourings in Custard Powder. Custard Powder typically has a yellowish tint.
Baking powder is used in baked goods to increase volume and lighten the texture. It works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into a batter or dough via an acid-base reaction, which causes bubbles in the wet mixture to expand and leaven the mixture.
Vanilla extract is always added to desserts because it adds flavour chemically and also brings out the flavours of other ingredients in the mixture.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
