How is this vegan friendly when there's milk in it? can you use soya milk or rice milk? - 06 Nov 2012


I'm so glad I tried this recipe, not only is it super simple to make but it tastes fab too. I used dark muscovado sugar instead and baked in a 7x7 cake tin, which took about 30 minutes to cook. Would highly recommend this recipe to everyone. - 18 Dec 2011


Really easy to make. I added a teaspoon of baking powder to the recipe too.Tastes lovely-added an extra kick of mixed spice/cinnamon to the recipe to enhance the flavor.Outer edges slightly chewy in texture but I like that! - 13 Apr 2013
