  • Using a spatula, fold in flour by thirds; be very gentle with dough, so you don't over mix it and lose the fluffiness.

  • Place batter into a greased 9 inch pan. Bake it for 30 minutes, use a wooden toothpick to check for readiness. If the cake is baked, dough should not stick to the toothpick.
