      This was wonderful - silky and light. I baked in a 20cm round ring tin and it only took 40 minutes. I served it warm with butter, DH and kids all loved it. Made for ZWT8 French leg, The Fearless Red Dragons.

      One word...divine! It is such a perky flavored cake and not overly sweet which we adore! It has a nice soft texture but is solid when cut so it does not fall apart. Not one little thing went wrong when making it - it was a breeze to throw together. We tried it plain, with ice cream on top and then with some Strawberry Coulis (Raspberry or Strawberry Coulis) and they were all just wonderful. Found and made during the ZWT8 tour.
