If the batter looks a little lumpy, it's okay.

(Sekiranya adunan agak berketul, tidak perlu risau.)

Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s) and bake for 25-30 minutes. Poke the center of the cake with a skewer or a knife after 25 minutes. If it comes out clean, remove from the oven. Bake for another 3 minutes if you want the top to be brown and have a slight crunch.

Making cupcakes? Check after 20 minutes.

(Tuankan adunan ke dalam loyang dan bakar selama 25-30 minit. Cucuk tengah kek dengan lidi atau pisau selepas 25 minit. Sekiranya tiada adunan yang melekat, keluarkan dari ketuhar. Untuk kek yang lebih garing, bakar selama 3 minit lagi.

Untuk kek cawan, cucuk dengan lidi atau pisau selepas 20 minit.)
