    great and family love thanks if you want a stronger taste of caraway crush half a teaspoon in a pestle and mortar the flavour becomes intense but not for children (too strong)  -  02 Nov 2011


    Too much flour so the cake is very dry and more like bread. Not the buttery sponge I was looking forward to at all  -  18 Aug 2010


    Delicious recipe! It was perfect. I must say though, that "pour into pan" is impossible. You have to pat it in like biscuit dough. The texture was fabulous, very tender, with a lovely crust. I'll be making this again and again!  -  22 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
