I have tried this recipe which turned out successfully delicious and perfect for special occasions. Off-course! it cannot be birthday(because YOU ARE MUSLIM and You cannot imitate kuffar traditions) but yes EID DAY or for cute kids at home =).

Tips for baking :

1-Grease 2 pans, with little oil and then sprinkle flour or cocoa to grease it well.

2-Use  9 inch pans.

3- Don’t open the door of oven before 25 minutes of cooking time, because cold air entering into it can ruin the batter.

4-Set oven at 350 Fahrenheit before making the batter.

5-Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes or more.

6-You will use two pans so place them inside the oven, leaving one inch space between them.

7-You batter must be thick to get delicious cake texture and taste.
