This is a great cake for beginners as it is very forgiving yet tastes great. This was the first cake I made with my daughter for some friends that were coming to visit. Everyone loved it and we enjoyed dunking it into our tea.
Just made this loaf today, I doubled the quantities and added 1tsp mixed spice, then cooked for 1hr. Really tasty but find the crust on top to be very crunchy. If making again I will cover top with tin foil for last 10-15 minutes of cooking to hopefully stop this happening again - 01 Oct 2014
