How to Test Cake for Doneness
To prevent overbaking, check cakes or cupcakes at the minimum baking time indicated in recipe. Insert a toothpick in center of cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done. If it does not come out clean, return to the oven for a few additional minutes before rechecking.
Prepare as directed, mixing 1/2 tsp. each ground cinnamon and ground cloves, and 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg with flour mixture before beating into butter mixture as directed.
Dessert can be a part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
