Hi, I'm using Firenzzi 60L oven, the temperament of the oven is very hot, i bake my butter cake at 125deg C( recipe yield for 145deg C), I'd like to know if bake this cake using the same cake pan(i owned one exactly like the one in the pic), how many degree C should I use and how long should I bake? Tq

P/S: I'm still very new to my oven and unable to handle the temperature well therefore I'm asking for your advice on my previous post. Thanks

Hi Asther,

Maybe you can try 150C for 45 min. Bur you have to monitor every 15 min, if the top turn brown too quickly, lower the temp.
