Is Bebinca a cake?
No it is not.Yes it does have flour and eggs but no raising agent and it can be best classified as a dessert.It has a similar texture of “halwa” but is not so rubbery and is much firmer to cut.Also it is not baked in a traditional cake way.The batter is poured layer by layer and after each layer is poured it is baked in the oven for around 10 minutes each.After getting golden brown,the next layer is poured and this process is repeated till about 10 or more layers are done.
