You thought that Americans made cakes in the same way as the French? But it’s not!
They don’t make cakes themselves, they buy ready-to-use preparations and just add eggs, water, and oil. The « pastry » aisle of supermarkets are filled with these boxes. And even cream that you can put on the top of cupcakes also.
I reassure you I still managed to find the flour and the baking powder to make cakes by myself, but the pastry aisles are not as filled as in France…
I still wanted to try a cake with a preparation, so, I’ve tested it for you! I chose a lemon cake and I put the dough into cupcakes cases. All in the oven during 20 minutes and it was ready!
Verdict: Well it’s not bad! The cakes are very moist and tasty. Even the husband loved them!
Benefit: This allows the husband who doesn’t know how to cook to make me chocolate cakes and brownies (The husband eats chocolate at morning lunch and dinner of course!).
