RECIPE TIPS

Use these two techniques to know when a cake is done:
Toothpick test: Insert a toothpick into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean with no batter sticking to it, the cake is done. If there are still some wet crumbs or batter stuck to the toothpick, leave the cake in the oven for a few more minutes.
Finger test: Gently press the center of the cake with your finger. If it springs back and doesn't leave an indentation, the cake is done. If you notice that your finger leaves indents when you press down, put the cake back in the oven for a few more minutes and check again.

Some tips to make the cake denser:
1. Use ingredients like eggs, milk or yogurt to add moisture to the cake.
2. Reduce the amount of baking powder or baking soda in the recipe.
3. Replace all-purpose flour with cake flour or almond flour.
4. Bake the cake at a lower temperature.
