Can I replace the caster sugar with brown sugar? Also, can I use half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour to make up the 3/4 cup of flour?

Hi, I tried this cake today. It was hard. I baked it for 20 mins in 200. I had preheated the oven. After beating egg and castor sugar, quantity had doubled. Not sure of the reason. Yukthi
