I tried baking a cake for the first time. The brief procedure I followed was:
- Mashed 4 eggs. Added to it 1 cup sugar, 200g butter. Mixed it using an electric mixer.
- Then added to it 1.5 cup of all purpose flour. Mixed it thoroughly again using electric mixer.
- Baked it at 180 degree celsius for half an hour.
But the end product was not light and fluffy at all.
It looked something like this:
My question is:
What actually went wrong with this cake? What can I do so that I do not end up making a cake like this in future?
I want to make a normal cake which is significantly light and fluffy.
