- The actual recipe calls for 4 tablespoons butter along with oil. I forget to add it. It should be added to the second step along with oil.
- In case you want to omit butter, add 1/2 cup oil.
- The original recipe uses 3/4 cup of sugar. I added a little less. It was just of the right sweetness. You can add more for a sweeter touch.
- For the same quantity of ingredients,the original procedure says it takes 40-45 minutes to bake but mine got done in 30 minutes. So bake accordingly.
- I did not get a batter consistency when I mixed the flour and milk mixture. It was more like a sticky dough. So I added a little milk, around 2 tablespoons, to get the consistency as you can see in step 3.
- I used disposable aluminium boxes.If using a cake pan, grease and dust or line with baking sheet before pouring the batter into it in step 4.
