I've made this recipe twice in the last couple of days - one as an experiment and then the other as a Birthday cake!! Both times I have had to give them about 70 minutes to cook but been fine!! Very happy!! Just posted a picture of the undecorated cake for people to see!! - 20 Jan 2014


This is the amzing way to surprise your friends. Just add some butter cream and mabye sandwich it together with some fresh cream and jam (raspberry jam is great but it's up to you) Enjoy this great treat - 03 Jul 2013


Used this recipe but adapted it slightly to make it a marble cupcake with chocolate butter cream, worked really well. A lovely easy recipe which gives a fantastic tasting cake when done. - 28 Jan 2014
