Whisk the batter well and bring it to a nice medium consistency, neither too thin nor too thick consistency.  Now pour the batter into the greased cake tin and tap it gently so that the batter is spread evenly in the tin and extra air bubbles are let out.  Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree celcius for 30-35 minutes or till done.  Check the cake by inserting a toothpick and if it comes out clean, it means the cake is ready.  Also when it leaves the sides of the pan, then the cake is ready.

Remove the cake from the oven.  Let it cool down for 10 minutes in the pan.  Run a butter knife on the edges of the pan to loosen the sides.  Invert the tin over a plate or a wiring rack and lightly tap on the cake pan.  Let the cake cool down completely.

Cut the cake into desired shapes and enjoy.
