Chocolate Cakes and Muffin Tips

Chocolates cakes
Chocolate is a very popular confectionery thought the world. It is my favorite food since young. I like to use chocolate as ingredients since I started baking. While chocolate cakes are among the most demanding and tempting pastries available, it is very important for me to focus on several points when making chocolate cakes. little loves

Just use covertures chocolate if possible, since it emits a rich taste and aroma. The price is significantly higher than normal cooking chocolate due to the cocoa’s fat content. 

Chocolate is normally stored in a very good, dry area, but not in the refrigerator. When chocolate is stored in the refrigerator, it absorbs moisture besides making it difficult to melt during baking.

Right now there are several ways to melt chocolate. One way is by using a microwave oven. Simply stick it in a microwave pan and let it dissolve for a couple of seconds, stirring to melt it evenly. The other way is to place chocolate into a bowl and boil over simmering water. Continue stir it to dissolve the chocolate.

Keep a detailed vision on the chocolate dessert during baking. As the cake may be dark in color, prick it with a skewer to check whether it is properly baked. If same cake crumbs stick to the skewer, it means the cake is cooked. Ultimately, we want the cake to be humid and not dry.

Take away the cake from the oven. Leave it in the tin to cool for 5 minute at room temperature before inserting it on a cable rack. Decorate the dessert after it includes completely cooled down.

Muffins
Muffins are generally leavened by baking natural powder; therefore I suggest using double action baking dust. The muffins will climb higher and have a lighter texture. Muffins usually have a rough structure compared to cakes. Mixing up must be done carefully to avoid over-mixing the better. A wooden spatula or hand whisk is recommended for mixing the better.

Baking muffins require high temperature and must be immediately baked. The oven must be preheated for about 15 minutes before baking the muffins or other baked products.

Muffins are usually dished up fresh from the range and will be held for about 2-3 times. They can be adorned with cream to present an attractive look, especially for children’s parties.
