This is a delightful recipe that my mother got many years ago when she was helping in a children's home. This is an easy traybake cake recipe with walnuts and glace cherries, perfect for tea time, kids' lunchboxes or indeed a picnic. The cook at the home served this cake with morning coffee one day and my mother liked it so much that she asked the cook what it was called. The cook replied "don't ask me", hence the name.
I used a 20x20cm square tin. It cooked in 25mins and has come out of the oven looking and smelling delicious. Marked it into 9 squares as soon as it came out the oven, and then when it had cooled removed them from the tin. They came out easily, which was a relief as the topping is quite delicate. Can't wait to have a piece when the kids get home from school! - 13 Sep 2013
nice easy cake to make although I added milk to the mix to make it a spreadable consistency. Will definitely use the recipe again - 20 Apr 2014
