    I cooked this for 20 mins and it was still totally raw in the middle. What size tin should it be in?

    Kids loved this (so did we!) it all went within 1 hit so had to make another the same day! As i usually do, I reduced the sugar by at least 10% and it still tasted sweet enough. A sprinkling of sugar on the top is a must as it gives it a lovely top. Have just made a third one to give to my mum but it may not get that far....

    I made double quantities too, made approx 16 good-sized small cakes. Works fine with caster sugar instead of golden, and plain flour/baking powder instead of SR. Crumble mix instead of sugar for the topping is fab :-)

    Just made this with raspberries and it is utterly, utterly delicious. The perfect summer cake. I had a sneaking suspicion I would be wanting more of this cake than the initial recipe suggested, so I made double quantities and it nicely filled a 3lb loaf-tin. Cooked in about 45 minutes. I also swapped golden caster sugar for ordinary caster sugar, because I didn't have any golden in the house. Seriously, make this. It's awesome.

    I am having to make one of these a day at the moment, as everyone loves it so much. you could fancy it up with some buttercream and fresh fruit on top,
