Check That Your Cake is Ready
You don’t need to cut your cake to see if it needs more time in the oven. Take a look at the edges of the baked treat. If it’s just starting to pull away from the pan, it’s just right. Or you can stick a tooth pick, thin knitting needle or knife into the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean – i.e. with no batter streaks – it’s ready to be sliced and enjoyed!
