About this recipe: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.

Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3. Grease and line a 450g loaf tin.
In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well. Transfer to the prepared loaf tin and smooth the top.
Bake for about 45 minutes in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool and serve.
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
