  1. This is wonderful. I am bookmarking it from here. May I know the measuments of you cake tin used for baking? I need to check I can prepare it with my round pan or not!

  2. @banu, I have replaced oil instead of butter and vice versa in my banana muffins recipe. They turned out nice. I think this will also turn out good. just try it out.

    • Yes 2 days in room temperature in a air tight box will do. Allow the cake to completely cool and then put it in the container. Ensure that you use dry hands while handling the cake
