Expert Tips
  • Ensure that the ingredients you will use in the recipe are at room temperature.
  • Add yogurt water to the mixture to give it a diluted consistency. Thus, your cake will be softer.
  • Instead of adding the flour all at once, slowly add it by sifting.
  • If the consistency of the batter is too liquid, you can add flour.
  • You can preheat the oven to ensure that the cake cooks properly.
  • Add the powdered sugar when your cake has cooled completely. Otherwise, it will melt.
