    I made this cake today for the family. They loved it. I coooked it in two sponge cake tins which worked well. I enjoyed having the old fashioned cup and spoon measures as the scales on my thermie are not working atm. The only thing i will change, next time I will leave out the salt. Thanks for a lovely easy recipe

    Apart from missing the milk in the method, this recipe is delicious. The cup of oil was 200g and the flour was 500g. I used a different icing leftover from another cake, which was cream cheese-based and delicous with this cake. I baked the cake in a rectangular baking tin and it made enough for a crowd!

     

    Thank you for weighing those cup measurements, zpelling. I added the milk in before the step where blueberries are added and stirred in with a spatula. Originally, I made an error and hadn't added the milk in the ingredients list, but have adjusted this now.

    Thank you for trying this recipe.
