  1. Suba your chocolate cake is looking super yummylicious! Just a quick question. Do I need to use an electric mixer or rubber spatula during adding in the flour and cocoa powder? I used to bake cakes but it turns out to be hard inside and crunchy outside. Hope you can help me. Thank you.

  2. if you use electric mixer, use the lowest speed.But its advisable to use spatula when folding flour or any dry ingredients. Gently mix in one direction only and make sure don't overmix.
