A Spoon Is All You Need To Obtain Perfectly Flat Cake Tops
For many home bakers, achieving a perfectly baked cake is a challenge, but luckily, there's a simple way to ensure a perfectly flat cake using just a spoon.
TikToker Ana Calderone recently shared a brilliant hack that ensures your cakes come out flat rather than domed, meaning less work post-bake and no wasted cake scraps.
Before baking, use the back of a spoon to create a well in the center of the cake batter, ensuring that as the cake rises, it will create a level surface rather than a domed one.
This spoon technique works like a charm because it encourages even heat distribution and cooks the cake from the inside out, rising uniformly and resulting in a level top.
