    Just tried to make this and it turned out like cake mix, I don't think the egg should be added, will try without egg . I've not wasted the mix made 9 cup cakes.  -  09 Feb 2018


    Yummy reminded me of my primary school. A firm family favourite in our house. I tweaked by using coca aswell as custard. Yummy.  -  09 Jul 2016
