Tips for Making a Salvadoran Maria Luisa Citrus CakeWant to make this delicious El Salvador recipe? Here are a few tips to help you perfect it:
- Use room temperature ingredients. Make sure the eggs, butter, and orange juice have had about an hour to reach room temperature before you start mixing things together. If you fail to do this, the ingredients will not mix properly, and you will have a dry, grainy cake.
- Use three cake pans, and line them with rounds of parchment paper. This will help you remove the layers without breaking them.
