    Not impressed with this recipe at all.  -  10 Oct 2015


    well what a lovely cake.Had to half the recipe as never had enough of some ingredients and needed something quick and easy,I used mixed nuts as had no walnuts and crushed them and reduced cooking time but keep an eye on it cooking as it took under half the time using less ingredients. but well worth doing and I will be making this again my son loved it.a good tip; be nice to have had the buttercream icing to go with it too. but lovely and recommended.  -  18 Jul 2016


    Love this recipe!! I didn't have walnuts so used some chopped mixed nuts, lovely moist cake and a big hit with my family. I made a buttercream frosting to go on top.  -  30 Aug 2015
