paper. Transfer the cake mixture to the cake tin. Press down gently.
Bake for 3 hours. Check after two hours. If the top is browning too
quickly, cover with some waxed paper.

cool for 30 minutes. Gently remove cake from the tin & peel away the
paper. Let cool on wire racks till completely cooled. Wrap in waxed
paper & keep in a cool place.
