奥黛特·威廉姆斯的简单的蛋糕arrived on my doorstep the day before Phoebe’s birthday, but something tells me even if it was a random Tuesday in the middle of the night, this book would’ve given me no choice but to beeline for the kitchen to bake a cake, like the one you are looking at above: What she calls Chocolatey Chocolate Cake with Silky Marshmallow Icing.
简单的蛋糕是我喜欢的那种食谱：美丽的，个人的，诗意而不柔和绵绵。While there’s something to be said for the biblical “category killer” type of collection, the one that has every recipe you’ll ever need, the baking books that get me to break out the standing mixer are the ones that feel like the author just pulled out a few stained index cards from her wooden recipe box; the ones that have the overall feel of你如何可爱停止。那是什么简单的蛋糕是。威廉姆斯给我们的食谱10个蛋糕和15亚博国际彩票登录个浇头。虽然这听起来不像很多，一旦你做的混合和匹配数学那里，你会看到它可能是你永远的需要。
当你翻阅它，你会发现自己太高兴了，你仍然有杏仁粉的那个包在茶水间，因为：杏仁加托！(So simple! Seven ingredients; one of them is salt.) It will suddenly occur to you that maybe a warm Cinnamon Donut Cake (think farmer’s market cider donuts, but in cake form) would cheer up your daughter who is injured and sidelined from playing her favorite sport. Or perhaps Bribery Cake (Chocolatey chocolate cake with chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream) would work for that, too. As Williams’ writes, “It’s the cake you bake to help you or a loved one across the finish line.” Next up for me: TLC Cakes (pan-fried Coconut Cake), Self-Care Cake (Milk and Honey Cake with Whipped Cream); Poppy Seed Yogurt Cake, called A Cake for the Working Week.
换句话说，这是不可能读这本书，notthink: It’s a good day to bake a cake.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 10-by-3-inch round pan with butter, line the bottom and sides of the pan with parchment paper, and grease the paper. (I’ll let you just grease, line the bottom of the pan, and lightly flour the sides if you’re feeling lazy.)
Place a large sifter or a sieve in a large mixing bowl. Add the flour, cocoa,baking powder, baking soda, and salt and sift.
In another large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla together.
Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until thereÂ are no lumps and the batter is smooth.
2large egg whites, at room temperature
