This cake is sticky and toffee-like when you cut it and tastes great. It is filled full of nuts and seeds of your choice.
You can use any nut and seed combination you desire. The following options work well: pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, sultanas, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pistachio nuts, unsalted peanuts and cashews.
I was very disappointed with this recipe. Made it for my husband's birthday and the whole cake just sunk in the middle after taking it out of the oven. It also got quite burnt on the edges but was uncooked inside so oven temp wrong. I have managed to recover some of it but my husband didn't have any candles to blow out this year. Did follow recipe to the letter and this recipe was a first time fail for me. - 18 May 2013
Altered ingredient amounts. I used half of the ingredients and it was yummy and only needed baking for 30 minutes. - 11 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
