5. Add milk and 2-3 tbsp of egg mass to the oil. Mix and add to the total mass. Beat until smooth.

6. Gradually add the flour and baking powder while continuing to beat.

7. Pour the resulting dough into a baking dish (25 cm) covered with parchment. (If the size of the dish is 18-22 cm, the expert recommends reducing the amount of ingredients by 2 times or dividing the dough into two parts and baking separately). Once the dough is poured into the mold, tap the table several times. This is necessary to get out large air pockets.
