With the dry ingredients already well integrated, we just have to pour the preparation in a mold, in my case use the mold to serve the cake, so add butter to the mold and enharine, if you want to demould this cake the most advisable is to place waxed paper at the bottom and sides, then dumped into a preheated oven at 180 ° C for 30 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.
