    Tried this recipe @CupcakeJemma . However not too sure what went wrong. The texture of the cake feels to "bread-ish" like 🙁

    Need to make one or two loaves of this for my family so they like me better! ^^;

  3. Glitterpop785 says:

    Is cake flour the same thing as self raising flour ?

    does the yoghurt harden?
