    Take care - this comes up in a search for eggless cakes but has 2 eggs listed - you'll need to use egg substitute.  -  23 Jun 2012


    Tried the recipe for my first time in ages and the cake turned out fine. Probably only needs 25 mins cooking time though, due to fan assisted oven.  -  24 Mar 2012
