  4. Have patience and make sure to add eggs one by one.

FAQs

Can I use milk in the place of whipping cream?

Comparing the consistencies of milk and cream, it is not a good option to use milk. However, there is one condition to use milk. Combine it with butter and then use it as a replacement for cream.

Is heavy cream and whipping cream the same?

Heavy cream is a bit dense but whipping cream is a bit light and fluffy. However, whipping cream also comes as heavy whipping cream (containing 36% or more fat) and light whipping cream ( containing 30-35% fat)

Can I add cinnamon to this cake?

The basic recipe remains the same. It is for the original taste. But if you love the hints of spice and cinnamon aroma in your cake, you can certainly add a pinch of cinnamon powder to the batter.
