Tarla Dalal    Hi Bhavesh,firstly do not overmix the batter, as it contains baking powder mix the batter in one direction, do not rest the batter, immediately bake it, after baking do not keep it open or air dry instead cover it and keep it in air-tight container for fluffiness. Hope these pinters will help you get a fluffy cake. Do try and share your feedback. Happy Cooking!!!
