Chloe, this is delicious, more-ish, decadent and rich - what a treat!! I would recommend flouring the pan after greasing it, simply because the sides of the cake became too crusty for my liking. I also felt the temperature was a little too high as my cake started browning too early on the top - but every oven is different, so we must expect to make individual adjustments. I covered the cake loosely after about 40 minutes and turned the oven down a fraction, and that did the trick. I chose not to make the icing and simply dusted powdered sugar over the top, merely becuase I was terrified of the calorie count, already, without it!! Thanks for a super recipe Chloe.
Great Cake recipe but I have changed the icing and added a raspberry sauce to my recipe. Turned out amazing. Best eaten on the day and cannot be refrigerated for more than a couple of hours as it goes solid. TY Janelle
Made this last night after work and took it in for an early morning meeting. I replaced the water with mango nectar and added 200g of pulped mango flesh to the dry mix. Cooked at 160 C for about 1.5 hours. Again, icing sugar on top with some thin strips of dried mango. Nothing but positive feedback for your recipe.
