Lusog Notes

This dessert is high in vitamin A that helps maintain eye health and promotes normal growth and development. It also protects one from infections by keeping skin and other body parts healthy.

Chef's Tip

When baking cakes with fruits or nuts, coat them first with a portion of the flour mixture so that they do not sink to the bottom of the pan during baking.
