I was dubious when I saw the ratio of liquid ingredients to flour but these turned out lovely and moist. Needed a bit longer to cook through but a lovely taste and texture. My hubby said they were the best cakes I've made-they taste somewhere between parkin , malt loaf and pumpkin bread. Lovely still warm out of the oven! - 31 Oct 2015
