  • In case you don’t have an oven, bake the cake in a steamer, pressure cooker, microwave, or over a stovetop.
  • Make your own ground almonds for a healthier cake. 
  • Before baking, ensure that you have preheated the oven. 
  • Pay attention to how thick or thin the batter is. You can add in more flour if it is too runny but do this gradually to prevent dryness.
  • If you notice this during the baking process, you can extend baking to 10 to 15 minutes more.
