      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. Q. Even after baking for 15 minutes my Lava cake sinked? 
        A. Use fresh baking soda. Baking soda tends to loose its strength over a period of time. It is important to check it freshness before using. To check the strength of baking soda, take a small amount of baking soda in a bowl, add a few drops of vinegar or lemon juice. If it fizzes immediately, the soda is good or else discard the soda.
         
      2. Q. Which oil should be used to make the Eggless Chocolate Lava Cake? 
        A. You can use neutral falvour oil. Sunflower oil or Canola oil are prefered.

      Taste wise its good but even after 15 minutes, cakes are sinking. Tried to even put back in oven to bake, they still sink & are hardening

         Hi, use the same temperature as mentioned .. but bake it in convection mode.. in your microwave. We use tropolite and Rich brand whipping cream.. you need to beat the cream with the help of an electric beater till stiff and then use it..
