(10 Best Simple Cake Recipes)

Just before you run to your kitchen to fix yourself a quick sugary treat, we bring you some flavour pairing tips that can add that extra edge to your baked batches.

- Vanilla pairs well with most fruits lending in an irresistible flavour. You can use berries, spices like nutmeg, cinnamon and of course, chocolate. Tartness also works well with vanilla.

- Dark chocolate and coffee is a classic combination that is loved by all. Contemporary bakers are also experimenting by pairing dark chocolate with orange, lemons, salted caramel, Himalayan rock salt, vanilla, nuts like walnuts, pecans, coconut and even wasabi.

- Always remember, you should add agents either to balance flavours or heighten them. A dash of cinnamon, lemon rind, or ginger shavings can brighten up mild flavours, whereas roasted nuts can help in bringing about a balance.

- Go beyond coffee and explore the world of baking that boldly experiments with different teas like Sencha or Matcha, as well ingredients like caviar and fish. Sounds innovative, right?,
