How to Know When Your Cake is Cooked

How to Know When a Cake is Cooked — How Do I Know When Cake is CookedHow to know when a cake is done is a question that is sometime difficult to answer, especially for beginner cooks.

Indeed, the exterior look of the cake is not necessary a good proof of the doneness: your cake might have a golden crust from the outside, but might be not cooked well inside.

So here’s a good old trick

When you want to check if your cake is properly cooked, open your oven’s door then pull the cake pan and prick a knife blade vertically in the center at mid-height:

  • If the blade comes off with sticky dough, then you’ll still have to wait.
  • If the blade comes off dry, then the cake is cooked!

Simple isn’t it? Well, that’s the kind of old tricks that are easily overlooked but very useful.

Wholesome and delicious meals to brighten your life.
