spot on so easy to make and tastes really good.
dont leave it in the saucepan after you mix the ingredients for too long it will start to turn into a cake like mine and you cant fold it into the baking tray
Had a bit of a disaster. Cake came out of the oven all flat and blackened. I did use S/R flour and set temp at 180C and was only in for 25 mins. Still, at least the inside of the cake tastes ok.
it works! it tastes ok, having just come out of the oven, letting it cool now... may need to add tons of syrup on top mind ^_^
Just made this - it tastes fine, but I think my tin was a bit big for the amount of mixture used, so next time I'm going to make double!
My first atempt went a bit dogey
But I tried it again and I doubled the mixture
And it tastes fantastic!!!!! :)
WILL THESE AMOUNTS DO A 1 POUND TRAY??
really easy to make but should state what size tin to use as mine was too big (24") so next time i will double up
I followed this recipe exactly but after 35 mins it still hasn't cooked through (and I had preheated!) I don't understand...
I added mixed spice and it was super!
If using double quantities leave longer for cooking - still very squidgey in the middle after 35 mins!
just made it and it was perfect, waiting for it to cool down now :)
Just made cake and it is very nice. It was very quick. Just two mistakes made - I tried to take cake out too early so it kind of broke the other thing is I think that the amount of syrup should be reduced, 4 tbs is a bit too much.
absolutely delicious and very easy to make
OMG.great taste and very easy to make.but where can you get an "american cup".
just made it tastes good!!!!
ive just made it..it's in the oven.....i've doubled up and the mixture looks lovely...fingers crossed!..lol
For info to G.W.D. whether it is an "american cup" or not really doesn't matter, just as long as you use the same cup for all measurements. It's more about relative weights than absolute weights.
The single best cake batter I have ever had! Still waiting for the actual cake though!!
Very easy to maker and tastes delicious!!! I put chunks of chocolate in the bottom of the tin too and that was a tasty surprise! It is niced served warm with cream.
Best cake mix ive ever tasted. just waiting on the cake, lush :)
very easy to make and tastes superb
Easy to make and a great treat, thumbs up on this one.
Roughly how many people does this serve? I've noticed that several people doubled up the amounts, just wondering if i should do the same? Thanks in advance!
Tried this without the egg (needed a quick recipe using golden syrup instead of a large quantity of sugar, and forgot we didn't have eggs.) Used two bananas instead of the egg, and a lot more milk as the mix started cooking in the pan (so I reckon around 100 - 150ml.) Added some nuts, and cooked it for 25 minutes in a 25cm pan. Hey presto, banana-nut brownies, which were gone while they were still warm. I will try the real recipe when I've got eggs, but in the meantime if you're short on eggs and well-stocked on bananas, this works pretty well.
I use a similar method for gingerbread cake. leave pan contents to go cool before adding egg and milk mix then mix with sieved flour..looks like this will make 1pound loaf tin size...cant wait to try it..
i think it tasted very sickly
did anyone's mixture seem really sticky and glooopy and hard to put into a cake tin?
can you use this same recipe to make muffins?
