    Impressed! Easy and yum!  I didn't have any mixed spice so added cinnamon instead, (and 90g of oil), but it's the icing that brings it all together! mmmmm! Thank you!

  • This cake turned out really

    This cake turned out really well. Nice and moist and the topping was nice. Next time I make it I will use the reverse speed on 3 for the walnuts as I like them to be a little bit bigger. Great recipe.
