Comment by Girija Moholkar
Hi...i want to try this recipe for my husband's b'day which is tomorrow..however i have one doubt, you have not mentioned either baking soda or baking powder but in one of your comments you said you cannot replace baking soda with powder...so just wanted to confirm if i should use baking soda or powder or none...
Hi Girija, This is a pretty dense cake and does not need baking powder or soda. The syrup that we add makes it moist.
The comment was a general doubt. For any recipe, you can use baking soda even if the recipe says baking powder but not vice versa.

Can i try this receipe in microwave oven or i need to do something different? Also i was interested in the carrot -walnut-wheat flour cake which can be made in micro. can u suggest the receipe.
I've not made in the microwave. So i'm not sure of the timings.

do i need to preheat the oven & thn for how much mins i have to bake? (2)do i need to put the whole batter at once i mean it will bake n come out or i have to divide into 2prts & can i keep the batter to bake afterwards incase it doesnt fit in 1bowl
The oven has to be preheated to 350 degrees F and the cake has to be baked for 40-45 minutes. That's the timing for the entire dough in one cake pan. You can divide the dough into 2 and bake in 2 pans or store for later use. In that case the baking time will reduce.

Wonderful receipe ;can we use baking powder for cake.
Hi Tanu, Thank You.
When any recipe calls for baking soda, please use only baking soda. You can substitute baking soda for baking powder but not vice versa.

Can you give me the measure of whipping cream in cups or in grams.
Hey rani, That should be approximately 4 cups of whipping cream.
