You need a 3 egg mixture (actually makes a bit too much, but you can make some fairy cakes with the extra)

Take 3 eggs - weigh them in the shells. Write this down.

Weigh out the same weight of sugar and v soft butter or margarine and beat together till light and fluffy.

Mix in eggs and two teaspoons of vanilla extract

Weigh same again of SR flour and fold in.

Bake until elastic to the touch

You need to grease and flour the tin really, really well as it tends to stick a lot as the tin is so complex

Well, the other day I started doing dinosaur cakes, and then Ds changed his mind to do the train, and the 2 egg mixture filled all but two of the train bits

I used a 4 egg mixture on my practice run blush and it came out fine.

I used cake release but the tin is such good quality I'm sure it will be fine without.

160 for a fan oven seemed to work well with no burning.
