Questions:

Hi I just wanted to ask you kept 4 eggs is it fine if you only put 2 eggs for 1 piece of a cake

Answer:

If you want to use only 2 eggs, you'll have to use only half the ingredients, and get a smaller cake. Eggs are very important in a cake batter, and use only half of them won't work properly. Sorry!

Hey, just I have a couple questions, 1st. what flour is used, plain or self raising 2nd. what sugar, caster or just normal sugar and 3rd. im going to be using 8 inch cake tins, how long roughly will it take to cook?

Answer:

Hi :) The flour used is plain, we never use self raising here at Petitchef's. It is normal sugar, With your 8 inches cake tins, it will take around 20 minutes at 350°F. :) Enjoy this delicious cake!
