Baking Cupcake Experiment
Beat together sugar and egg until fluffy with an electric mixer in the bowl.
Baking cupcake experiment. Now that i have cream of tartar and plenty of saleratus i shall make a cake which is what we re doing right now only we re putting the batter in cupcake pans and we don t have to make our own baking powder which is what ma was. Ma ingalls in the long winter was glad to finally after months of near starvation get some supplies that enabled her to cook good meals once again. Fill the same amount of batter into each cup of a cupcake tray and bake together. Science is basically magic in early childhood and nothing is better than the good old baking soda and vinegar experiment it is the absolute gold standard best.
Add milk oil vanilla and baking powder and beat until well mixed. In one cake we left out the baking powder and in one cake we left out the oil. Who doesn t love a good toddler science experiment. So baking is chemistry.
Therefore it is not necessary to bake the batter with only baking powder right away like it is when it contains baking soda. For my experiment i altered the baking powder and baking soda with coffee and milk. See which rise the best. We made four different ones.
Not much taller than the original recipe 1 teaspoon was 4 5 centimeters. The average normal cupcake was 4 4 centimeters tall. Kitchen experiments can be the most interesting because they involve common everyday household items and yet point out some great science concepts. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In one of the cakes we left out the egg. We did an experiment with mini cakes to see what happens when we leave out certain ingredients. One cake was made correctly with all of the necessary ingredients. For example most children are familiar with cake baking even if they ve only watched and smelled the process from a distance.
All the other ingredients in the cupcakes would be exactly the same. An experiment about the acids of cupcakes would compare chocolate cupcakes made with vinegar buttermilk lemon juice or cooking sherry. But this science experiment is so much more than just a one and done baking soda and vinegar moment. You ve got to see this fun twist on an easy toddler science experiment.
Welcome to cupcake project where everyone from novice bakers to professional pastry chefs can find sweet and savory recipes to inspire and treasure. 0 teaspoons the cupcakes with no baking soda grew to be an average of 2 centimeters tall. Read the recipe read the recipe all the way through first. I recommend 1 4 cup of milk and 1 4 cup of coffee per 1 4 teaspoon baking powder in a chocolate cupcake recipe.
