  • I have reduced the sugar to

    I have reduced the sugar to 250g from a whopping 600g!  When mixed with 600g grams of flour I wouldn't take out any more sugar.  Raw cake mixture is really thick, but the baked result is light and fluffy! 

    You could bake in a couple of loaf tins and put the butter cream icing on top only.
