Consider coffee cake as a basic fundamental. A stand mixer is the ideal equipment to use when preparing one as many utilize the creaming process. A few additional tools will be necessary in order to complete the task. Assess the items ahead of time. Here’s what you should know.

The Ingredients

One of the most important factors when preparing cakes is to be certain ingredients are the proper temperature before beginning the recipe & that they are measured properly whether they will be used for the streusel or the cake batter. 

The Butter

Softened butter is called for often in recipe applications. The key is to begin the mixing process whether for cakes or other baked items with butter that is the proper consistency. It shouldn’t be too firm nor too soft. You should be able to create a rudimentary butter curl with a spoon indicating that it is indeed ready to use.

It’s important that brown sugar is measured properly for use in recipe applications. Pack brown sugar in measuring cups. The back of a smaller cup pressed tightly over the surface will help get the job done quickly. Use a butter knife to swipe over the surface for a level, even measurement.
