Not good. Followed this recipe to the last detail. I have a gas cooker. 45 mins on, top was slightly burnt and inside all runny . . . I have baked several recipes from this site with success, this is an epic failure. - 28 Sep 2012


Terrible recipe! Exactly the same, burnt top runny middle. Too hot for a loaf and too short a time for quantity. - 14 Apr 2013


What a disaster... I had similar results to Burnt on top and runny in the middle. The ingredients are the same as the usual sponge cake recipe I would bake on 180 degrees Celsius, and did wonder; but went ahead anyway as I trusted the recipe. I had to throw it away. - 16 Jan 2013
