I scaled this back serve 4 though if I had made the recipe as written for 16 I could well have eaten all it alone with no problems. It is a gorgeous cake. Mine was a lot "flatter" than the pic shown but that is probably due to making a smaller version. As I was out of sultanas and raisins I used half a jar of fruit mince as my dried fruit and 2 huge apples and this really made a delicious dessert
