4. With an electric mixer, beat the mixture on low speed for 2-3 minutes until the dry and wet ingredients are well combined. Do not over beat it 
5. Pour the batter in the prepared pan. Tap the pan a couple of times so the batter is spread evenly and there are no air bubbles.
6. Bake for about 30 min. Check the cake with tooth pick. Toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake should come clean whrn the cake is ready.
