            Hi Ruchi…. My cake turned out just perfect…. 😀
            I used brown sugar and also replaced butterscotch crush with my homemade butterscotch sauce.. I also used the same sauce to fill in between my cake layers along with whipped cream and I garnished the cake with butterscotch and peanut brittles…
            The cake was superb.. thanks a ton Ruchi…..

    Had a query, Ruchi – For a 9 inch tin, were you able to get the cake tall enough to be divided into 3 sections? I actually baked twice to get the cake quantity for 2 layers and applied the cream accordingly.

    HI… You have mentioned Baking soda in the Ingredients section, but there is no baking soda added in the Method u have given…. Please confirm if baking soda is required or not…?
    I tried your recipe but it came out sunk in the middle of the cake… Can you please tell me the reason?

    1. Oh sorry, yes you have to add cooking soda while adding flour and baking powder….

      Oh so shocked to know that ur cake didn’t turn proper. I think consistency of batter plays a big role …. Hope you will try again with perfect measures
