  • The Reason You Never Use A Toothpick To Check A Cake's DonenessMost people agree that a simple toothpick can tell you when a cake is ready to eat. But what if everyone was wrong? As it turns out, there's a better way to check whether or not your cake's ready to eat. Who wants cake? Sticking in a toothpick is one of the most time-honored baking techniques for those looking to figure out whether a cake is done. But as simple as the technique is, it's also not a very good one. For those unfamiliar, it simply involves inserting a toothpick or a different small slim item into the cake. According to generations of folk wisdom, the cake is done if the toothpick comes out clean. In reality, by the time a toothpick is cleanly removed from a cake or other baked goods, it's already too dry and overdone. Toothpicks typically come out crumb-free at around 212 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature that water boils. The boiling off of that water in the batter means the final product will be drier than it should be. So what should you do instead? The answer can be as simple as using an instant-read food thermometer. Aim for an internal temperature of 205 degrees. After cooling outside the oven, this temperature will produce a perfectly tender and moist cake. There are several critical factors and features you'll want to consider when selecting the right kitchen thermometer. Naturally, accuracy is the most essential quality. With some high-end models, you can calibrate the thermometer for especially sensitive tasks. It's also critical that thermometers be instant-read models or produce a temperature reading within a few seconds at most. This will limit the time the baked goods will be out of the oven if they're not finished. Thermometer probes should be durable, simple to extend or retract, and easy to clean.

  • Thermometer probes should be durable, simple to extend or retract, and easy to clean.
  • Make sure to consider any other additional features that like the type of display and whether temperatures include decimal points.
  • This also includes price, which can vary significantly between budget-focused and high-end models.
  • Still, you should always keep in mind that when properly cared for, a quality baking kitchen thermometer can provide years of use.
  • However, you should still seek to check the temperature as few times as possible to avoid the issues related to opening the oven because the temperature will drop as you remove or replace the baked goods,
  • Creating more inconsistent results.
  • Luckily, there are also other reliable ways for bakers to tell when their cakes and other creations are ready.
  • Flour company King Arthur recommends checking out the edges of the pan.
  • If the cake is pulled away, it's likely done.
  • The shrinkage is a sign that the water in the batter has mostly evaporated, pulling the other ingredients more tightly together to form the cake itself.
  • When done, lighter-colored cake should also turn golden brown on top.
  • This color change occurs due to two key processes, both of which are desirable for your final product.
  • The first process is caramelization, where sugars in exterior portions of the batter break down and change in flavor and appearance.
  • The second is the Maillard reaction, which involves protein, sugars, and other substances chemically changing in flavor and appearance in the presence of heat.
  • The latter is the same process that browns the surface of a cooking steak or a roasting potato.
  • More experienced bakers can tell if a cake is done by smelling for the right fragrance of a finished product or touching it to see whether it leaves indentations.
  • If it leaves indentations, the cake needs more time to cook.
  • For some, it can be tempting to wing it when figuring out whether a cake is done.
  • But baking is a science as well as an art, and both overbaking and underbaking a cake can have downsides.
  • Overbaked foods can become tougher and more difficult to digest, putting extra stress on the body.
  • The consequences of underbaking can also be serious, with undercooked dough or batter serving as a perfect incubation spot for harmful bacteria that can cause food poisoning.
  • That said, finding alternatives to the toothpick check is a critical step toward producing better baked goods.
