    Absolutely BRILLIANT cake! I have had such bad luck in the past with dry cakes and this one lives up to its name. However NOTE I didn't cook it for as long as it says. I made one and a half mixture (yes, I put in 4 and a HALF eggs!) - cooking this in a large square tin - and thought I'd check it after an hour. I'm glad I did as it was PERFECT - any longer and it would have been burnt/dry.  -  06 Dec 2011


    My cake unfortunately turned out dry, I will try baking another one as the flavour and the icing was wonderful, just a dry cake  -  10 May 2012
