    My entire family loved this, it went in a matter of a day. I didn't think there was so much oil needed however as I only used 100ml. I also added in Mixed Spice instead of cinnamon as it gave the cake a warm essence to it! Just keep on adding the spice until you can taste it as two teaspoons of ground cinnamon simply isn't enough! Also try mixing in ground cinnamon into your icing for another gorgeous taste and dribble it on top! Perfection!  -  10 Sep 2011


    Used different ingredients. I made this recipe with Dove Farm's GF white bread flour. I kept the same amounts as stated. It was a huge success!  -  08 Nov 2010


    . Great cake. i improvised a little by using less sugar and adding chopped mixed nuts. I don't think you need so much sugar, I used 250g instead of 300g  -  26 Jul 2011
