Hi, i can see this seems to be a successful recipe, im looking to make this for a friends birthday, can you just give an idea of what size tins you use? im looking to do a rectangle cake. - 18 Oct 2012
I have used this recipe two years in a row for my wifes birthday and both times it has been a great success. Once all ingredients are in bowl i like to whisk it all together for a bit longer than usual to get as much air as possible into it.
I used asda free from self rasing flour and no baking powder along with lemon flavouring instead of vanilla this year and also used Betty Crocker chocolate buttercream icing for the topping this year and it was a great success - 02 Jul 2012
It might be obvious to most people, but a lot of baking powder contains gluten. It would be nice to add this as a warning when baking powder is listed as an ingredient. My poor Dad tried to bake me a cake especially but didn't realise that because of the baking powder he used I couldn't actually eat it! - 12 Jun 2011
