NOTES:

For this cake you can add nuts in with the cake batter for your own taste. In the past I have added sultanas chocolate chips, Dried fruits. Baking is enjoyable so add any ingredients you enjoy. Best results with this cake comes with doing simran or having bani being read in the back ground. If any batter is left over, just add the batter into cupcake cases and make yourself some little cupcakes.
