Now pour this mixture on the baking paper and smooth the top surface. Now put the tray into the oven and bake for half-hour. Time may increase if the mixture hasn’t turned golden and springy. You should not check the mixture until oven time reaches twenty-five minutes.

  1. Take 1 cooled sponge on the serving tray and speed the jam on it. Now add another sponge at 2nd top layer. Take icing sugar, sieve it and add lemon juice or water to make a smooth and thicker paste. Spread this mixture on the top of your cake and let it flip to the sides. Now take some chewnuts to sprinkle on the top, and finally, leave it aside for more minutes before cutting it into pieces.
