    Can we substitute coconut oil with other oil for tis cake?

    • Victoria Bakes (August 7, 2015)

      yes you can. coconut oil is a personal choice for health preference, and i think it pairs well with chocolate and nuts. hope this help

    Hi there
    Do I use fan or top and bottom heating for this? I\’ve tried baking ogura cakes but the top always cracks and I wonder is it due to the oven mode.. Pls help..

    • Victoria Bakes (September 15, 2015)

      use top and bottom heating. if using fan mode which i discourage (but if your oven has only fan mode), reduce temperature by 20 degrees C. top cracking could be due to ovens being too hot (use an oven thermometer to check) or overmixing of batter

      • ameldat (September 16, 2015)

        Thanks for the reply.. I tried it earlier in the day and I made it!! No cracks!! Think I mixed the batter too much previously, my bad habit.. But a little polka faced tho.. Lol.. Shall try other ogura cakes to reach perfection..
