Baking requires a kind of precision like no other. Your measurements should be exact, including the time duration for each step – beating, stirring, pre-heating, and such. They also take up so much time to prepare.

However, most of our favorite cakes need baking.

Make sure that there are no lumps. Then, add the starch and mix again. You must eliminate the bubbles in the mixture so that your batter will be smooth.

Pour the milk in a thin stream while stirring constantly.

When the batter is mixed well, put the pan on top of a stove and set to low heat. Continue stirring while heating the mixture and bring it to a boil.

You can cut them into smaller pieces to fill the gap and cover the entire area. If you find this a bit difficult, you can use a square mold of the same size instead.

Pour a layer of batter.
