For the Wet Ingredients:

Baking the Cake

  • Take a loaf pan and butter it really well, sprinkle with flour and coat on all sides. Tap off the excess flour and set aside.
  • Pour this entire batter in the loaf pan
  • Preheat the oven at 170 C.
  • I baked at 170 C for 40 mins, then at 155 C for 15 mins. Anytime after 35 mins, you can check if the center is done or not
  • Remove from oven and let it cool for 15 mins.
  • Now remove from tin and cool. Slice and serve.


The recipe I noted down was baked at 160 degree C for 40 mins.
