About this recipe:This easy cake can be prepared in no time. I think it's the bubbles in the Fanta® that make the cake so fluffy. It's especially good for children's birthdays as the cake doesn't rise so high and so is easy for smaller kids to eat.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
200ml sunflower oil
200ml orange Fanta®

Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4 and line a deep 20x30cm baking tin with baking parchment.
Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Then stir in the sunflower oil and gradually stir in the Fanta®. It will fizz quite a bit.
Mix the flour, baking powder and salt and stir the mixture into the Fanta® gradually. Spread the mixture over the bottom of the prepared baking tin.
Bake in the preheated oven at 180 C / Gas 4 for 20 minutes, reduce to 160 C / Gas 2 and bake for another 20 minutes.
When cool, spread with chocolate icing (shop bought, or make your own). Cut into small squares.
