The recipe for this cake was on the fridge door for over a year. Why I haven’t for a year baked this cake is a question I cannot reply. I really don’t know why. Even my friend Yiouli tried this recipe out and confirmed how yummy the cake came out.
And then one day while cleaning the fridge, I decided to clear the fridge door. You can imagine the situation of the fridge door. Full of notes, drawings and pictures of our cutest family member. So this was the time I decided to finally try the recipe out and bake that freaking cake.
And it didn’t disappoint me a bit. It is one of the fluffiest and dreamy cakes I have yet baked. So please find the recipe below to bake it and try it out yourself.
