Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The toothpick test is vital in many recipes, including this one.

When you think the cake is done - insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake. If there is batter on the toothpick when you remove it - the cake is not yet done. If, however, the toothpick is dry when you remove it - the cake is ready to be eaten!
