A really easy and classic cake that's always well received. This will become your staple Madeira cake recipe, guaranteed! Use your favourite rum for the recipe. You can also use brandy if you feel like something different.
the ingredients make a very large cake and the baking time was double that stated in the recipe. Tastes ok but will not bother again. - 02 Sep 2010
Just loved this! My girls enjoyed making it, it's the first time we have ever attempted anything like this. We had lots of fun and got very messy as we used the electric whisk. - 05 Nov 2010
