There seems to be a SERIOUS ERROR / MISTAKE in the recipe for CAKE RUSK posted by Syeda Creations, in that she has listed the AMOUNT OF BAKING POWDER to be used in the recipe as 1 TABLESPOON, when there is only about 1 CUP of FLOUR. That is WAY TOO MUCH BAKING POWDER for 1 cup of flour. The correct amount of Baking Powder to be used in a recipe, especially in this particular recipe for Cake Rusk, where there is only 1 cup of flour should be 1 TEASPOON (NOT 1 tablespoon!). Too much Baking Powder will make the "cake" DOME UP very high in the oven, & it can also fall, and cave in, after baking. Please correct the error / mistake in the amount of Baking Powder in this recipe for Cake Rusk.
