Well, there are different varieties of cakes for different occasions. People usually search for cake recipes to bake during Christmas. Yes, Christmas is the perfect occasion for cakes and hence there are ample varieties of cake (depending upon your taste) to bake during special occasions.
Today we will be discussing different varieties of cakes that have different tastes and relevance.
Let’s get started!
5 different varieties of cake to enjoy during special occasions!
- Butter Cake
The recipe for the cake is not complete without the ingredients of “butter and sugar” in it. Butter not only adds that creaminess to the cake but also gives it a fine texture. If there would be no butter in the cake, the cake would be baked hard and there would be no softness in it.
To enjoy a spongy cake, butter is an essential ingredient that must be followed without fail.
Well, there is no such flavor within which the butter is just an essential ingredient to be added. It is essential to be added to every cake flavor like chocolate, butterscotch, white truffle, black truffle, and others.
- Sponge Cake
Ever wondered what a sponge cake is? No right? Well, we are here to let you know that a sponge cake is something that contains no baking powder and baking soda but a large number of whipped eggs or egg whites. As the name suggests, ‘sponge cake’, is required to be as spongy as it can be and hence these two ingredients do a lot of justice to make it happen.
- Biscuit Cake
Not so known cake, biscuit cake is a new type of cake which is highly preferred by foodies. It is another type of sponge cake that contains egg whites and egg yolk. It is preferred by the ones who have a liking for intaking loads of sugar as it is way too much sugary.
- Angel food cake
Well, in angel food cakes, there are no yolks added but all whites. Whites are completely whipped along with sugar until sugar marries the whites and they both are ready to be mixed with fruits. One main thing to note about this cake is that it is baked without butter and yes that makes the cake completely fat-free.
- Carrot cake
Preferred to be baked as a Christmas cake, this cake is also baked without butter. A pinch of edible oil is used to give it a smooth texture. It slightly takes longer to be baked than the butter cakes and hence needs to be cooked for a longer time to get good results.
