Mix wet ingredients together

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Add eggs one at a time

Add some of dry mix, then wet mix and repeat until all combined

Carefully pour into cake tin, tap to set cake mixture into place

Place on baking tray and cook for 1hr 30 mins, test with a skewer, it should come out clean

Cool in tin for 15mins

Oh so gently place cooling rack on top of the cake and turn upside down and hope the cake drops out odf the tin in one piece!

Decorate as the mood takes you…..


For variety in the bake try:

Spices like ginger with 3-4 chopped balls of stem ginger + 4 teaspoons of ground ginger

Lemon and poopy seeds, vanilla and lavender, chocolate chip 100-150g , marinated fruits or nuts
