  1. Made this cake last night – very successfully. It looks impressive, tastes great and is perfect with a cup of tea mid afternoon or for dessert with yogurt or cream.

  2. Tasted great, a very stiff mixture, I was surprised how tasty the cake was given the consistency before it was cooked. It was very popular with my guests
