Baking Bothers: Storing Cake Batter

Q. Can I make my cake mixture in advance and store it?

Abby Moule says: It is best not to do this as you have an active ingredient in your cake mixture such as baking powder or bicarbonate of soda which will expire and prove ineffective once baked.

Try to make your cake mixture and bake it within an hour, cake mix is so easy to knock up and can normally be done within 10 minutes so it is easy to do as and when you need it.
