Used different ingredients. Used more marrow (around 300g), and replaced the cinnamon and nutmeg with 4 tsp of mixed spice. - 07 Apr 2011

Hi jennyt00k, delighted you enjoyed the cake! To note, you do not have to peel the marrow before grating and adding to the cake, though if you want to, that's fine, too! - 01 Sep 2010

I used a little less sugar but it was still too sweet for our taste. Also took a good hour in our oven. Overall an easy tasty cake though! - 06 Aug 2011
