6. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. For baking, take a rectangular, square or round baking sheet. Line the bottom of a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush with vegetable oil. Spread the biscuit dough and put in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Pierce the cake with a wooden toothpick and check the cake for doneness.
7. Remove the cake from the oven and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
