About this recipe: This is very easy and very moist, once made it will become a family favourite. Just double up the ingredients to make 2 (put 1 in the freezer if you can). I sometimes lightly toast some pecans and put them chopped on the icing.

Cake came out perfect. Great tasting and very moist. I used light brown sugar, and only put 150g in.. - 28 Apr 2012


Altered ingredient amounts. OK, second time I made it I used oil and it was so much better: moist and soft. A friend of mine suggested I should use a part of brown sugar, has anyone tried that? - 17 Sep 2009
