4. Add sugar slowly. Beat for another 10 mins.

5. Put mixer on low and slowly add the flour. Or you can fold in using a spatula.

6. Pour in hot water along the side of the bowl and quickly fold in until liquid is blended.

7. Divide mixture into pans and bake for 35-40 mins. Do Not Open oven during baking or cakes will collapse!!

8. Switch the oven off and let the pans sit in the oven for another 5 mins before removing.
