I am 'the one who can't cook' in my family, but I found this recipe in my mum's old food tech book, and it's brilliant (and fail-safe if it works for me).

It's really good as an 'alternative' birthday cake, a cold-winter-evening-with-a-mug-of-hot-chocolate-and-a-good-book cake, or a cup-of-tea-and-a-chat cake. Enjoy...
