5 tips for making an economical cake recipe
We often have little eggs at home and it’s not even for lack of money, but for forgetfulness or even daily rush, it’s normal. However, even at these times it is possible to make incredible recipes and still spend little.
This type of cake is highly recommended for an afternoon snack, even the recipe above accepts very well marble frosting, creamy whipped cream and marshmallow topping.
Thinking precisely about these moments when saving is good, I bring 5 tips for you to make economical cake recipes, follow!
1. Choose recipes that pay a lot
There are all kinds of recipes, which use the most varied ingredients and often end up increasing the final value of the cake. On the other hand, there are ways to create sensational cakes from recipes that pay a lot.
For example, if we talk about pot cake, I know recipes that yield more than 30 pots of cake. And the best part is that the cost of the ingredients is low, as they are simpler ingredients, but they fulfill their role.
Therefore, to really save, you need to identify that excellent cost-benefit.
2. Replace home appliances by manual process
As in the recipe I presented above, it is possible to replace appliances such as a blender and mixer, through the process of beat the cake in hand. It may not seem like it, but for those who are used to making cakes frequently, the electricity bill grows a lot too.
In addition, nowadays you can find recipes where people use the pressure cooker, even saving on gas. After all, one of the things that makes the revenue more expensive is precisely the gas.
3. Sufficient but moderate coverage
What a lot of people don’t talk about is that using a still very warm topping helps to save on the cost of revenue. That’s because the icing becomes more liquid and allows it to spread even more throughout the cake, avoiding having to make another recipe to complement it. 😉
4. Cheap fillings also work
If a simple cake is already wonderful for breakfast or afternoon, it’s the filled recipes that really catch the eye. And at this stage it is common for people to exaggerate, create complex fillings or in unnecessary amounts.
That’s because the value of the ingredients in a filling is what makes the cake more expensive. Stop to think, you spend little on wheat flour, baking powder and margarine, but you can’t spend little when we talk about condensed milk, cream and powdered chocolate, right?
With this, opt for fillings that have been stirred and ready, such as using ready-made strawberry juice to make a delicious sensation stuffing, for example.
5. Buy ingredients and products at wholesalers
Finally, make sure you buy the ingredients and products for the cake at wholesalers, so you can buy in greater quantities and at a lower price.
Evaluate whether it is ideal for you to buy this way, as this type of product usually comes in larger quantities, that is, the expiration date will be tight for you, if you don’t bake so many cakes, this tip is essential for those who sell cake.
