    I've just made this for the second time and it has turned out just as tasty as the first time, so clearly not a fluke on my part! Work colleagues loved it. Would just add though that in my oven I needed to cook it quite a bit longer, covering it with foil after around 30 mins.  -  20 Dec 2014


    Made this with my daughters. One is egg allergic and egg free recipes often disappoint, but this was outstanding. We ended up with 24 cupcake / muffins that no-one could eat less than 2 of at a time. Also added a bit of cocoa powder. Lush. Make it for yourself!  -  31 Jan 2016


    My loaf cakes are usually an epic fail! This one is magnificent. Thanks a lot. Substituted 20g of flour for cocoa powder. Yum!  -  03 May 2015
