  1. roshan.. one doubt.. is it necessary to use a springform pan for this cake? or we can use an ordinary cake pan.. plz reply…

    • Hi Elby,

      Thanks for dropping by.:)
      It is not necessary to bake the cake in a springform pan.
      The reason i used is because, it has a clasp on the side, which, when released, enables the sides of the cake to loosen from the pan . There’s no need to invert the cake to get the cake out of the pan.
      If you are using an ordinary cake pan use a 9” cake pan lined with parchment paper and also greased (buttered) which helps to remove the cake.

      Njoy!!!
