  4. Hi Jeannie,
    I noticed your oven temp is only 160C but you bake it for longer 50-55 mins. Is that your secret to evenly risen cake? Usually my cakes are much higher in the middle.

      Hi Celina, I don’t that’s the case. Just that it works with that temperature and timing for my oven but you can try.
