About this recipe: I found a similar recipe on the Polish internet around 5 years ago and I changed it and tweaked it a lot since then. I think I made it at least 20 times. It's very sweet, full of different surprises (seeds, nuts etc.) and everybody loves it. It's also quite filling so it might even last for 3 days - that's if there are no children around! There is a lot of writing but the cake is very quick to make. I personally put loads of different stuff in there, the more the better.

Altered ingredient amounts. I used half of the ingredients and it was yummy and only needed baking for 30 minutes. - 11 May 2010
I was very disappointed with this recipe. Made it for my husband's birthday and the whole cake just sunk in the middle after taking it out of the oven. It also got quite burnt on the edges but was uncooked inside so oven temp wrong. I have managed to recover some of it but my husband didn't have any candles to blow out this year. Did follow recipe to the letter and this recipe was a first time fail for me. - 18 May 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
