      Hi there,

      Well, good question, normally we prick the middle of the cake with a toothpick to know if it’s dry, but this cake is creamy inside, especially on the middle. We use another technique, when the cake starts to gain color (just like on the picture) and on the middle is a little bit higher than the rest of the cake, it’s probably cooked. Try this and tell us if it works. Bon appetit!!!
