Here you have to be a bit careful. See to it that the mixture is neither too dry nor too wet. If you feel that the mixture is very dry add a bit of water to it in order to make it a little bit loose and wet. Make sure that the mixture is not extremely wet. You should deck the cake tins with baking paper so that they get perfectly lined by it. Make sure that the tins appear lubricated at their insides. It is not a bad idea to smear the insides of the cake tins with a little bit of butter to bring about the desired lubrication. Divide the mixture equally and fill the tins with it and flatten their surfaces. It is time you get the mixture nicely and truly heated in a cake baking oven for about 30 minutes. Heating process has to be slow at about 175 degrees Celsius. You might have to check time and again whether the sponge is well formed or not. This can be done manually until you would come to know that it is well made.
