Step Number Two: In a bowl, put the 150g of flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder, then mix well. When the wet mixture above starts to boil, add this dry mixture. Mix thoroughly, when the dough stops sticking to the pan, that means it’s ready.

Step Number Four: As the recipe video suggests, prepare a 25cm pan with parchment paper/baking paper at the bottom. Pour half of the dough for the first layer of the cake. Spread well and then bake it in the oven for 20 minutes, just put it on the medium-low part of the oven. Repeat this step for the other half of the dough or the second layer of the cake, then set aside.
