My Mother was born in Scotland and raised in Ireland and used to make this lovely cake for us when we were children. How we loved it! Now that I am a grandma myself I will make Dundee cake for my grandchildren and set up a lovely tea party. Can't wait. Thanks for putting up this beautiful recipe.

A beautiful cake that's very easy. I cooked it at a higher level in the oven for the first 1/3 of the baking time, then moved it to the lowest rack for the remainder, turning it at the same time. I used half wholewheat flour but otherwise I changed nothing. Simply perfect! Thank you for a great recipe.

Found out later this cake had nothing to do with The Office.

I didn't make any changes to the recipe, it turned out amazing! The crumb is very light and the cake is not too sweet, which is just the way we love it.

You forgot to say when to add the sugar! So the butter separated and the mix wouldn't cream. I guess the sugar should have been added to the butter. As beginners in the cake making department we had no idea. Had to look up another Dundee cake recipe to correct your error. Not impressed. Hope it cooks ok.
