Place the cake in the oven and bake in the oven for about 35 minutes. Then take it out and use the chopstick test to determine if the dough is cooked. It’s very simple: insert a wooden stick into the cake. If nothing sticks to it when you pull it out, the cake is ready. If there is still moist dough on the stick, the cake needs to bake a little longer. Allow the cake to cool slightly and serve while still warm. Enjoy your meal!
