We bake a good homemade cake and, thinking that it is safe, we leave it on a plate in the open air.
The next day, it has lost all its mellowness and here we are with a very dry « Christian choke ».
Here is a homemade storage tip to keep it just as good for several days.
To prevent your cake from hardening, just place a slice of bread on it:
How to do
1. Take 1 slice of bread.
2. Place it on top of the cake.
3. To keep the started side soft, also cover it with 1 slice of bread.
4. Prick it with 1 or 2 toothpicks to make it stick.
There you go, your cake will stay soft for a lot longer 🙂
The piece of bread will act as a shield. It is he who will dry instead of the cake.
Now you know how to store a moist chocolate cake for the next day.
It also works for storing yogurt cake, apple cake and even sweet or savory cake.
By keeping it this way, you can keep your homemade cake for 3 or 4 days no problem.
This technique works for cakes without filling such as cakes. But this grandma thing doesn’t work for those with custard topping or those with whipped cream.
These, we keep them in a Tupperware in the refrigerator, otherwise food poisoning is guaranteed!
A chocolate cake or a dry homemade small cake is not good, so we put it in the trash.
To no longer have to throw away a cake that was perfect the day before, just 2 slices of bread.
And no need to throw out the slices of bread once the cake is eaten.
No waste, make it into French toast. It’s easy and very good.
Another recipe is to break the slices and sear them in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil and Provence herbs to transform them into croutons for the soup.
