    JustJanS's Note:

    A very simple cake, with very few ingredients, and quick clean up. Just my sort of baking. It's not too sweet either.

      A simple and moist cake, I served this with honey butter for morning tea at work and it was devoured! I loved that it took little time and equipment to make. It did rise quite high above the pan but there was no trouble removing it after it had cooled in the pan. I will make again- no photos, eaten too quickly! Next time!

      This cake has everything a basic cake should have. It is moist(we didn't need to butter the slices), not too sweet or rich and it is so very easy to make! We loved it and will definitely make again. Thanks Jan.
