One question that I have been asked the most is what oven to buy. Actually, that totally depends on your usage. I have an article written on this topic, you can check it out. I have been using Morphy Richard 60L for a very long time now. I am a regular baker and this OTG has been an inseparable companion to me.
I would like to share a few pointers with you, which will help you bake a beautiful looking, gorgeously delicious eggless red velvet marble cake at home.
- The recipe is called for cake flour. Click on the link and you will find how you can make cake flour at home.
2. The recipe begins with buttermilk, which is a simple mix of milk and vinegar. You can use the same amount of lemon juice instead of vinegar. Make sure to let it sit for 5-7 minutes on your kitchen counter before using it in the recipe.
3. The recipe calls for warm water, make sure it is not room temperature or boiling hot.
4. I have used sour cream in the recipe. you can either buy it or can make it at home. Here is the link, explaining how to make sour cream at home.
5. Red food colour is essential because we are doing red velvet cake. You can reduce the quantity of food colour in your recipe if you don’t feel comfortable using so much artificial food colour. It will affect the colour, not the taste or texture of your cake.
6. I have used a loaf pan to bake this marble cake. You can bake the same cake in a round cake pan. For this recipe, you will need a 9inch round cake pan. I suggest using a springform pan with a removable base tray. But remember the baking time will reduce. You will need 30- 40 minutes of baking time.
7. My loaf pan is a silicon one, which is an incredible product. I don’t have to line it with parchment paper even. The cake just slides out so easily after cooling. This loaf pan, I had got from Austria and I am not sure if amazon India will offer you the same quality. You can use the regular loaf pan, just make sure to line it with a sheet of parchment paper.
