    Chopstick test: How to test if your cake is done.

    Using the chopstick test, you can easily determine whether your cake is not only browned on the outside, but also cooked on the inside.

    A long chopstick made of wood or metal, such as a skewer, works well for this.

    This is pierced into the thickest part of the cake and pulled out again straight away.

    If the dough sticks to the stick, you can assume the cake isn't done yet.

    So it should be baked in the oven for a few more minutes.
