I won’t go into too much detail about this cake. It’s exactly like the cupcake but this time I used GRANULATED sugar. No matter how many times I do this I will never learn. Okay so if you’re wondering why I re-made this simple. Because Arji was craving cakes I thought I’d quickly whip this up again, but sadly ran out of caster sugar.
I now know how to answer to “why do you only use caster sugar in cakes?” well the answer is because if it’s granulated it doesn’t combine well in the batter. That’s what I noticed and when it bakes it kinda holds the weight down so it doesn’t rise as much AND it makes the cake stodgy which ain’t nice in a cake.
