    lma, you can use three 23cm round cake tins, two 900g loaf tins, or two 20 to 23cm square baking dishes. Keep an eye on the cakes and adjust the baking time as needed.  -  25 Sep 2012


    Wow! A great recipe! The cake was lovely and moist. I didn't add the pecans because there were none in the cupboard. I halved the toffee sauce recipe and it was more than enough for the 4 of us (still some leftover). Would definitely make again.  -  16 May 2012
