    Kookaburra's Note:

    This is an old family favourite. I love it because it's quick and easy to whip up and it can be eaten warm - so you don't even have to wait for it to cool - perfect for unexpected guests! It only makes a fairly small cake - but quite enough for morning or afternoon tea - and it's nicer eaten fresh and warm from the oven. This recipe is from my Bible of cooking, Margaret Fulton's Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery.

      Simple and delicious--my kind of recipe! Rather than baking as directed, though, I made four miniature bundt cakes. And what delightful and tasty little cakes they were! :) (I substituted 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt for the self-rising flour.) Thanks for sharing the recipe, Kooka!

      Made this for the DH and he enjoyed it and rated it as 4. It took 15 minutes at 175C in a fan forced oven. Thank you Kookaburra, will make again.
