    • Toss the berries in corn starch or a little bit of flour right before adding to batter (between steps 5 & 6), to avoid pink strikes in the cake. Frozen berries do not need to be thawed before adding them to batter.

  1. Just a technicality but 70 ml is not ⅓ cup + 1 tsp (⅓ cup = 85ml, + 1 tsp – 5ml, that’s 90ml in total). Same with milk – 1 cup less 1 tbsp is 235ml, not 220.
    Anyway, cake was absolutely amazing 🍰❤
