Aside from making loaves of bread, your bread machine can also make pizza dough, cinnamon rolls and cakes. Consider how amazed your friends and family will be when you tell them you used a bread maker to bake a cake. Baking a cake with your bread machine can be simple and rewarding.

  1. 1

    Remove the pan from the bread machine. Place one tablespoon of vegetable oil or butter in the pan. Spread the oil around evenly, including the edges, with your fingers. The oil will help you remove the cake easily without breaking it.

  2. 2

    Mix your favourite cake mix in a bowl according to the directions in the package.

  3. 3

    Pour the cake mix into the pan and place into the bread machine. Press the "Bake Only" setting if you have one, otherwise press the "Rapid" setting. The "Rapid" setting does not have a set timer, so make sure to watch the cake to prevent burning.

  4. 4

    Remove the cake from the bread machine. Loosen the cake from the pan with a narrow spatula or knife and transfer it to a plate. Let the cake cool for about 30 minutes.

  5. 5

    Cut the cake into layers, and apply a layer of frosting all around the cake; serve and enjoy.

Tips and warnings

  • Melt butter before adding if your recipe calls for it. Avoid adding cold butter since it is difficult to blend into dry cake mix.
