Substituting eggs & oil!

I recently made brownies where I used a box of brownie mix and instead of using any eggs and oil, I used a banana that I purred in my magic bullet with some no-sugar added apple sauce. When combined I added it to my mixture, added in another 1/2c apple sauce and put in 2 tbsp of water and mixed. I made my brownies in cupcake pans to make serving size and it was delicious. Very moist, VERY chocolatey with a slight hint of banana in the background!

center "humps" in cake

center "humps" in cake

my mom had this info back in the 70's from a decorating class she took. Back then she would use strips of towels that would fit around the outside of the cake pan. Wet it with cool water and wring it out . . . pin it in place around the outer edge of pan and bake. The reason for the "hump" is that the out edge bakes first and has time to settle leaving the inner "hump". No need to cut off the excess. Wilton makes these insulated strips that I have inherited from mom. Works every time!!!!!


Easy Moist Cake Layers

Easy Moist Cake Layers

The way I ensure that my cake layers will be moist and never dry, is to invert the layer(s) on a serving plate or foil covered board while still quite warm and then wrap the top and sides of the layer(s) with plastic wrap. This seals in all the steam that would have otherwise escaped resulting in a very moist, but not soggy cake. Everyone always comments on how moist and delicious my cakes are and they are very surprised when they find out I use cake mixes (Duncan Hines of course)! Refrigerate the layers while still warm. This will help the layers firm up a bit. When completely cooled, the layers will be easy to frost and decorate. Let layers sit covered at room temp for 20 minutes or so before frosting. If your work area is humid, let the layers sit a little longer so the condensation will form on the plastic wrap and not on the cake itself. Remove plastic wrap and frost and decorate as desired.
