      just had a slice with a bit of spread on it. well worth the wait. will try and serve with custard as it hs the same texture and richness as sticky toffee pudding (my fav) but not so sickly(which i love). means u can eat more!!!

      Fantastic recipe, relatively easy to make (hardest part was waiting a few days before slicing it). Not too sweet like many cakes are, would definately recommend you try it at least once. golden syrup gives a great taste MMMM!

      A reasonably healthy cake. Smells great baking abnd after cooking. I doubled the recipe, and used two round pans. Worked fine. I also cut up a few more dried apricots than indicated, and grated a bit less orange rind. All, no problem. A very old fashioned-y recipe, great taste!
