Cake Gallery AE’s professional bakers categorise cakes by ingredients and mixing methods. There are many different varieties of cakes and many different ways to divide them into distinct categories. For deciding what to eat, home bakers like to group cakes by flavoring—chocolate cakes, fruit cakes, and so on— while this is helpful for the eaters, it does not aid in figuring out how to build a cake. The final texture and colour, if it's a yellow or white cake, varies depending on how the batter is made. Here are some basic cakes that are wonderful and can instantly satisfy your sweet tooth.

Butter Cake

A butter cake is any cake recipe that starts with the words "cream butter and sugar." Following the creaming, you add eggs to aerate the batter, flour and occasionally another liquid, such as milk, to give it structure and texture, and baking powder or baking soda to ensure that it rises in the oven. Within the butter cake family, there are chocolate, white, yellow, and marble cake batters; the colouring of white and yellow cakes is often determined by whether they contain whole eggs, extra egg yolks also called the yellow cake, or simply egg whites called the white cake.

Pound Cake

Relative to the butter cake, the pound cake gets its name from the fact that it can be measured in pounds: a pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of eggs, and a pound of flour, so on and so forth. In some pound cake recipes, the eggs are separated and the egg whites are whipped and folded into the batter to leaven it; in others, leaveners such as baking soda and baking powder are used to bring it into the butter-cake fold. Typically, these cakes are lightly flavoured and served plain or with a basic glaze or water icing. The cake is usually prepared in a loaf or Bundt pan and can be found in a variety of forms, including coffee cakes, sour cream cakes, and fruit crumb cakes.

Genoise Cake

The sponge cake known as genoise in Italy and France is made by beating whole eggs with sugar until they're thick and ribbony. Then flour and sometimes butter are added the batter is set to bake; the result is delicious. Placed in a round cake pan and simply frosted, but genoise is also pliable enough to be baked in a jelly-roll pan and rolled up into a roulade.
