It turns out there's a reason this is possibly the only video on YouTube where an attempt was made to cook cake by passing AC electrical current through it.
There was a lot of smoke (including plastic smoke) and largely unacceptable cake.
This experiment should not be attempted as it carries a high risk of electric shock and cake-induced obesity.
Here's a link to the video of the second attempt:-

You'll be glad to know that i'm about to do something incredibly stupid based on the panko bread makers, but i'm going to do an experiment where i try and cook a orange cake mix with uh 245 volts. That sounds quite good. Here's what i have made i've got a poundland. I think it was plastic container and i've added two stainless steel electrodes onto the end.

The stainless steel electrodes are a thin sheet metal that came from ebay, so just random metal uh with two electrical connections. In the case of panko bread, they actually put bread dough into containers that they pass ac current across and the ac current by traveling through the moisture it cooks, the bread in a controlled manner, i'm not sure what voltage you use. It's probably not 240 volts. Oh this egg, this cake bag's burst.

That's annoying. I've got a cake breech anyway, i'm going to start this experiment by opening this bag, it could have just shaken out the side. That's quite annoying, but i shall tip some into this bowl and mix it with water. You're supposed to also add um you're supposed to also add fat to it, oil, but um.

I'm not going to do that. I'm not sure how much you're supposed to use. I should just mix it up randomly until it looks the correct consistency and then i'm going to actually pour it in gradually i'll just add more yeah kind of enough cake. I'm going to add it gradually into this once i've poured off.

It's not poured off at the moment yet so where's, the water i'll add some water in i've got horrible feeling that cake batter is going to be incredibly conductive. This is going to make the experiment so much better if it is with panko bread. The reason they actually do it. The way they do with the electrical baking as opposed to an oven is because they don't want crusts on it.

It's the bread, that's used for breadcrumbs, so they basically grind it down once they've uh created crustless loaves, and then they just, i guess, just ship it out as breadcrumbs. Yes, anyway, i'm getting ready to power this up and we can monitor it with a hoppy. So i've got the quick test here: the quick emergency unplugged test as well, so i'm closing it down notice that i've got a glove in one hand. I am isolated from ground, i would put a glove.

On the other hand, i could i will put a glove on the hand it's it makes it look like i'm taking the safety seriously. There we go there. I've got two gloves on now. A thinner plastic in the front just provides that little extra protection.

This is now live at uh, 245 volt. Let's uh spoon the cake mix in and see what happens? Let's bring this central, so you can actually see the display, so i will zoom down a little bit as well. No, we wouldn't, because i've got the gloves on now, so i'm going to uh pour the batter in avoiding stuffing the spoon into electrical connections because that is live and as soon as it reaches the end, i'm kind of expecting a circuit to be made well. This is very suspenseful, i'm quite excited, let's see what happens when it actually makes contact with the end and is it going to puff up? Maybe i should have made more batter.

Oh it's almost there. Oh, the power is 27 watts. I shall add more. That's not a lot of power, i thought it was gon na be more, it's smelling very burnt.

I don't think this is the correct way to do it. It's 31 watts now, and there is quite a lot of smoke, um right, i'll, tap it down a bit and current is now passing through that the cake is now dissipating approximately it yoyos up and down. I think it's actually burning clear at the end. Maybe this isn't the way to do it.

Maybe i should have made moister cake batter. The power is much less than i was expecting. That is burning. It's arcing at the end.

There's lots of smoke. Maybe this is why they don't make pango cake. That's not steam. That's coming off that is smoke quite a lot of smoke.

It's very i'm just going to pick this up and dump it down a bit. Maybe i need more cake batter. Maybe it needs more water. Hmm, i would say this isn't going very well.

I mean in a way it's going very well, but it's not going very well. I wasn't expecting quite so much arcane smoke. This is the point that you may want to skip forward yeah because i'm just going to keep recording this and we'll see what happens but uh, it's 20 watts. It's not much.

It's not really going to bake the cake very fast. Is it? Oh, you know what there's no smoke coming out from underneath my cake thing because uh, it's actually burning through the bottom of the plastic container. That's gone extremely well, that's excellent! Um, right, wow i'll! Just leave it going! It's uh! It's doing stuff yeah! I have to say i get the feeling the rest of cake mix might be going in the microwave, because i this is uninspiring. Let's add some more water on top.

Oh, that's making a better connection. Maybe it was too dry, so the power is now 116 watts. See, that's better, isn't it. I shall use uh this spoon in my insulated gloves to just make that up a bit in between there keep in mind.

This is live the spoon at the moment, an intermediate voltage between uh 24 volts and zero volts. Well. 245. Volts yeah, i think making my batter runnier was - was the recipe for success here, it's 197 watts.

Now that's better, i think yeah. I should have made it wetter. I can always make another batch 200 watts is better, but that is still going to take a long time to cook this. All right tell you what to save your time.

Um, no i'll! Just i'll leave it running! You can skip forward. If you want to actually see what's happening i'll give you a super cake vision, i shall take the gloves off the left hand. I shall zoom down a bit just to get things better. Oh, it is puffing up and i can hear a bit of a 50 hertz hum now.

This is promising that usually precedes cake and it smells orangey. It doesn't smell like smoke anymore, that's nice, because this uh cake contains bicarbonate of soda as a raising agent as it gets hot. It liberates carbon dioxide, so the power is holding 198 watts. I think the trick here was to use runnier batter, but this was still worth the experiment, so you watch the cake right, i'm going to go and get a small spoon and i'm going to prod the cake.

I might even get a knife to prod cake. I think that's what you're supposed to do. I'm not much of a baker, but i believe you poke and see. If it comes out, stick in the middle mine will come out, live in the middle.

Oh, the power is actually dropping. The power is dropping 160. 361. 160 watts, yes, i i'm gon na get that knife and i'm gon na poke the cake.

It's it's starting to burn again. Maybe the circle, it's ready. Oh actually, you know what it's not bad. I think i've just broken the circuit there, i'll just mush the cake together, uh the power has dropped down to 33 watts.

I think this cake may be ready. 20 watts. It has it's dried out right. Tell you what i shall unplug the cake and i shall disconnect the wires for extra cake isolation, and then i shall slice a section of cake out the middle.

Now people are going to say, the use of electricity will have modified the cake structurally and it's very dangerous. Uh microwave ovens induce electrical current through keg, so uh it's not really much different. I'm sure i'm not sure what i use these gloves for so yeah double check. It's dead and now she'll take a bit of cake.

It feels very cakey, it feels very hot. Actually it's not bad. In that scent i mean it's hot, sweet and cakey. I'd say that such a success now, but aside from the fact, i've melted, a hole right through bottomless and everything the technique may be to use a much runnier cake batter, but uh yeah.

That has made the cake, though electrically it is possibly. Is this the first panko cake on youtube now, i have to say very dangerous experiment to try, because it involves means, voltage and exposed electrical connections. I just feel i have to say that, but um that um it's one of these cases that just uh i'll do the experiment, so you don't have to. But there we go that was panko cake.

Looked like it was a disaster produced lots of smoke, but ended up, not bad. That was actually a success.

    Some of the texture could be solved by letting it cool. That is normal with most breads. Normally you let it sit to either cook more or cool down and it stops looking mushy.

    When you started flailing around in the batter with the metal spoon I was pissing my pants. You're a nutter!

    Omg the comment about how you think cake batter is conductive made me laugh so hard I scared my cats ok either u are much funnier in this vid then normal or its the pot gummies but damn u hot me rolling

    Electroboom would electrocute himself on this trying to eat it whilst cooking with the elecricity applied.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MauriatOttolink says:

    Maybe they do it a lower current level and cook it more slowly.

    Turn the power off when you stir with a metal spoon

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MauriatOttolink says:

    You should have switched the off power after until the mixture was in the cooking vessel AND/OR used a wooden or plastic spoon!!!

    Take flour, sugar, salt, and other dry powders and mix them with water. Then cook them and break them down into breadcrumbs.

    Then further break them down into a powder and mix them with water. Then cook them and break them down into breadcrumbs.

    Then further break them down into a powder and mix them with water. Then cook them and break them down into breadcrumbs.

    Okay I'll stop now.

    even with my limited knowledge, when i saw a plastic tub with electrodes i thought hmmm thats not going to end well .. 5min in i was correct lol

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Killian Kuyer says:

    Congrats on the cake!

    But i got a question on those USB charges,
    i can hear electronics in idle its quite annoying most of my stuff is plugged out of the wall, But USB Charges they just scream when done charging and when charging its less loud but it has a beat in it.
    but i dont know if its cheap inside (they suck to open) or know that its safe (new or not) doesnt matter its 5/10 of all those USB Chargers doing it.
    or do i have very sensitive ears?

    Do you think when they do this professionally they do it in a metal cake pan? lol I have absolutely no idea just thought I'd throw that out there. Reminds me of years ago when I thought I would pop popcorn in the microwave in a plastic bowl, not a good result lol.

    Further to youre cake making i decided to do an experiment of my own in the lab using a pure sine wave inverter just for fun to see if it transistor's would let the magic smoke out, I have plugged in my bread mix using a tupperware pot modded with a stainless steel anode & cathode with a nylon spade bent under the bread so i can pull it out, i can confirm the validly of high voltage bread & to my surprise no smoke, it came out perfect & soft, all tho acording to my fluke meter it did scoff 680 watts & made the inverter bleep at one point. Your video's are always most entertaining & informative, keep up the good work, ime now going to actually make myself a proper solar powered bread maker haha

    This reminds me of the pudding “dimmer switch” I made in an instant when my lady said “can we go to the store tomorrow and get a dimmer” store?? Why? Lol 💡

    Does it not taste of burnt plastic? Maybe you could've used some kind of ceramic or glass dish?

    "I donno what happened… he was eating electric cake and carbonated scotch and all of a sudden his head exploded!"

    If you used a couple of microwave transformers it would have just popped into cakey-done-ness all at once. Can you try that next?
