Beating in the eggs until paled and slightly fluffy gives for a lighter, fluffier sponge.
Baking heat HAS to be wrong on this, as after 30-40 mins and gas 6 and prepared EXACTLY as recipe, i was left with a burn't cake with a soggy middle. What a complete waste of time and money If anyone else want to try this, i suggest cook on gas 4 for 60 mins - 01 Nov 2012
Just made this today it’s lovely, I bake it on a lower temperature for longer 150 for 1 hour, and left to cool on a wire rack as recommended 😊 - 29 Mar 2018
Don't have light brown sugar in the house. Used dark brown sugar instead but it didn't come out well. It tasted good but took 35 until cooked in the middle while it had a hard sugar crust on the outside. Next time I used a mix of mostly caster sugar and some dark brown. Much better. - 16 Apr 2017
