    Altered ingredient amounts. I halved ingredients and made smaller cake with no proplems at all, still tastes great. - 14 Feb 2009

    Just made this cake. It has been in the oven cooking for about an hour now and is still uncoiled in the middle. Got the oven at the right temperature and the cake is in a 8" tin. Hope it's worth it in the end. Don't know how anyone else has managed to get it to cook in 20-30 mins?! - 07 May 2011
