    The foto that is used for this recipe is very deceiving, i didn't even bother to slice the cake in half in the middle, because it had only risen by 3cm in the middle & 2cm at the edges, when it came out of the oven. I think it should've been baked in an 18 or 20cm cake tin not 23cm. I followed the recipe exactly & am quite a competent baker, so was rather disappointed.  -  03 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
