Mexican Wheat Bran Cake Recipe Translation Help?

greghoffman | Dec 18, 2012 09:33 PM

I've found a recipe for what I think is a particular cake I used to purchase at a Mexican bakery here in the Minneapolis area:

I'm having trouble translating the recipe, though. I get the general idea of the recipe - I saw a video of someone making a similar cake - but some of the measurements are confusing me.

1.) If I'm interpreting the Google translation properly - above the ingredient list, does it really say that the unit of measurement is a "glass Nutella (Nocilla) jar"?

2.) How much is a "packet" of baking powder?

3.) I assume "rayadura de limón" is lemon zest - but how much?

4.) What are the times/speeds(?) in the instructions? I assume some kind of mixer settings, but any particular one?

5.) What kind of pan?

If someone who works with Mexican recipes could help me with the translation of this recipe, I'd appreciate it.
