    Hi Friend, Thanks for posting the recipe. I tried out your cake but dont know why even after keeping it in oven for so long, though the upper & lower portions of the cake turned brown but inside it was uncooked. Any reasons what could have caused it, i followed the steps exactly as you mentioned.


    I just had the first slice of this, and it is just yummy!!!!! I made one change, that I took same quantity of all wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. This recepie is toooooooo good. Thanx a lot!!
