    • By using the correct size of tin.
      By ensuring the baking powder/ soda is not too old or expired.
      And lastly it depends on how the oven heats as oven works differently.

  1. Why no eggs when there’s dairy? Not vegan…or vegetarian to my knowledge. What milk to substitute? Almond, soy, ? Trying to find recipes. Thanks.

    • This is vegetarian, not vegan though.
      As for the nit based milk, I’ve not tried using those so i won’t know how the taste would be using either of these.

  2. Wonderful recipe. I m definitely going to try it pretty soon. Just a query the cup you have used here is 240 ml or 200ml?

    Hi, how your cake is not browned from top. Do we keep the oven on bottom element heating only. I keep on both top and bottom element heating and the top of the cake also gets browned. The cake tasted amazing. Thanks.

    • Hi.. when you say a sweetener .. I’m guessing you mean a sugar free sweetener. I think that should work however I have not personally baked with artificial sweeteners so wouldn’t be able to help you with the quantity though..
      thanks for stopping by!! 😊

  4. Lovely recipe…turned out very nice..liked by all at home…I guess this is going to be my all time favorite…thank you

    • Sure, you can use plain flour. I have used normal plain yogurt . Not Greek. Make sure the yogurt isn’t too watery. 🙂

    Hi! I tried this many times it came out awesome. But today it was too wet n liquidy from inside , it didnt bake well.
    What can be the reason? Not sure where i went wrong

    • Thank u for trying, I guess the curd was a bit more moist than necessary. Check if it’s too watery.

  8. Hi … I tried this cake with both all purpose flour and wheat flour…came out so good . Everyone at home liked it and finished in half an hour.. thank you for sharing
