  18. @Heena Mohindrau can go for chocolate butter cream or vanilla butter cream, whipped cream or chocolate ganache

  19. Can we have this cake without the frosting also? like a simple plain vanilla cake we get in bakeries?

  20. Hello Aarthi !

    I am a regular follower of your blog. ..a secret admirer! I tried this cake today. ..but not sure why the center part took very long to bake. About 50 minutes actually. The upper part has become crispy. What would be the reason? ?

  21. @Anonymous i think u must have messed with measurements. try it once more.

  22. Hi Aarthi! If I follow the original recipe, which measurement tin should I use?

  23. Hi Aarthi... I started following your blog recently and Amazed by your recipe collection .. Your recipes are very tempting 😊. I tried this cake today n it came out well 😊 Keep posting 😊😊

  24. hi aarthi.... im a bit confused... u hv another vanilla sponge cake on ur blog which has yoghurt in it... should i bake this or that?? what would b the difference?? wil that b softer??

  25. Hi aarthi...

    1. which mode you baked. bake with both rods on

  26. Awesome recipie!
    Can you tell how many pieces can I cut from this cake?

    1. Can we do frosting by cutting them without doubling the recipie? I am using 20 vm square tin

  27. Have tried this recipe. Comes out good each time!!! Love you!!!!

  28. I am trying this recipe in oven. Not microwave, but oven. The outer crust has formed v good, but inside the cake is still v liquid. I have already baked for 40 mins. Please advise

    1. i think u have made some mistake in measurement. try covering the pan and bake longer
