First read about the cake from here, who saw it here, who almost lost the recipe from here. The amount of sugar has since been cut to 160g (from 180g). I reduced it further to 150g. I also used salted butter instead of adding salt separately.
+ I used an 8 inch round pan and baked for 80 minutes. Original recipe’s baking time was 55-60 minutes with a 7″x7″ square pan.
