Cakes recipes

Types of cakes

Cakes are grouped into three classes; those made with shortening (conventional and quick-mix), those made without shortening (angel and sponge), and combination angel and shortening types (chiffon).

General cake baking

For a shortening-type cake, grease and lightly flour bottoms of pans, or line bottoms with waxed paper. Pans for angel, sponge, and chiffon cakes should not be greased, unless specified.

A shortening-type cake is done when a cake tester or wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. The cake also will shrink slightly from the sides of the pan. Angel, sponge, and chiffon cakes are done when the cake springs back when touched lightly with your finger.


Cool shortening layer cakes in their pans on wire racks 10 minutes (loaf cakes, 15 minutes), then loosen edges. Place an inverted rack on the cake and turn all over carefully lift off the pan. Put a second rack over the cake and invert again so the top side is up. Invert angel, sponge, and chiffon cakes in their pans as they are removed from the oven to prevent them from shrinking or failing.
