If you are baking a cake in a bread machine that doesn't have a cake setting what cycle would you use?

Do you have a quick bread cycle? That MIGHT work.

WAIT!!!You can bake a cake in a bread machine? Really?!!

Not sure you can do that. The bread cycle includes time for the dough to proof (1 or 2 times) before baking.

wow!! learn something new everyday. I googled a bit and it says to put on the mix cycle, than stop it when done and put onto a bake cycle. Wow wow wow
What's for dinner, mom?

I do not think it would mix well though. Bread dough pulls together unlike batters for cake. You also have to consider overflow, I would check how many cups (of water)the bread machine pan holds compared to a baking pan you might be using if baking in the oven.

You won't want to over mix a cake. I would worry about it getting too dry too. If your machine doesn't have the setting I would not use the bread machine.

Yes you definitely can make cake in a bread maker. I think I used the quick bread cycle but whatever cycle I used the lemon cake tasted delicious.
