Baking Golden Tip: To know  your cakes are ready, they should be gold at the edges and when you introduce a knife through the cake it comes back clean with no dough on it. 

 

      You can bake it in little molds for individual consuming, or in a big one for the whole family. The time of baking actually depends on that, in either cases, check the cake after 20 mins and with the Baking Gold Tip of teh day, see if you cake is ready. if not let it bake for a couple more minutes.
