  • Pour your batter into your lined 12" square cake pan and smooth out the top with your rubber spatula. 

  • Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, rotating the pan halfway through. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely in the pan(s). Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Loosen the edges with a straight spatula. Invert the pan(s) to remove the cake, and peel off the parchment.
