Even the simplest of cake recipes involves a fair amount of work. Heck, even those pre-made cake mixes that require you to just mix in water and an egg… still require you to do that much! How about you cut to the chase and simply squirt the batter from a spray can, directly into your cake pan? Oh, you may think it’s gross, but why? The propellant should provide the necessary air bubbles that give the batter its spongy texture, and the gas will dissipate by the time you’re done cooking. It’s inert to start with, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Provided it tastes good, this sounds like a good solution to us. Spray Cake is a creation of Harvard Student John McCallum, and he’s already found a distribution channel; they’re currently looking for a manufacturer. As far as how it tastes, baking superstar Joanne Chang gives it her thumbs up! So, give it some time and you may see this in supermarket aisles.
