    Delicious! That's it - just one pure word ! Did not change a thing - your directions are spot on and we all enjoyed a slice (well okay we enjoyed 2 slices each) this morning! So moist and the butter & sugar/cinnamon topping - well just heavenly. From 5 people you received 5 stars so you should have 25 stars on this quick and easy recipe! Found and made during ZWT8

    I really enjoyed this quick and easy cake recipe. The texture was nice and sponge-like, and the sweetness was just right. I plan to make this again. Made for ZWT 8.

    I had tea time in the late afternoon, and this went very well with my ginger tea. It also made for a really good morning cake. I love the cinnamon in here, it is so good.

    Reviewed for ZWT8. Such an easy and quick cake to make. I made mine gluten-free by using a blended gluten-free self-raising flour (Orgran brand) in place of the regular wheat self-raising flour. Turned out perfectly and nobody would guess that it was gluten-free. Photo to be posted. I love Australian Women's Weekly Cake recipes....I've never made one yet that hasn't turned our perfectly.


Well, I am very passionate about cooking and love discovering new recipes. I love participating in the events since I'm always finding new recipes that I wouldn't have found on my own. My housemates and boyfriend all enjoy our food adventures and I love to leave people positive reviews and nice ish photos.
