RECIPE TIPS

Some of our techniques to make the cake moist:
1. Add milk or yogurt to the batter, this two ingredientes add moisture to the cake.
2. Add oil instead of butter. Oil keeps cakes moist for longer periods.
3. Don't overmix the batter. Mix until just combined.
4. Don't overbake the cake. Overbaking dries out the cake.
5. Use a toothpick to check the interior of the cake, it should come out with a few moist crumbs, not completely clean.

Do not open the oven door all the way, leave the door slightly open and wait 5 to 10 minutes so that the heat enters the kitchen and there is no temperature shock that causes the cake to collapse (the time depends on the season of the year, if it is summer leave it for about 5 minutes, if it is winter 10 minutes).
Place the oven rack in the middle. This allows the hot air to circulate evenly around the batter, resulting in even cooking.
