 Uniqop’s advice:

  • Try to make your ingredients isotherm before you start to bake. For example, take out yogurt and eggs from the fridge.
  • Although bicarbonate sodium (جوش شیرین) is a chemical component, it is effective in the flavor
  • Heat your oven beforehand for 15 minutes.
  • In Yazd, they use fruit sugar instead of regular sugar for baking this cake.
  • You can omit the parchment capsule and bake it directly in a muffin shape pot.
  • Do not fill your capsules more than half, because of the baking powder cause enlargement in the size of cake while cooking.
