This was an all time family favourite pre thermomix times from my very well used Womens Weekly cookbook. Depending on your oven it may take longer than the 50 minutes to cook. Very easy and very delicious and moist.

    A huge cake, but mine is not overly moist. Will give it another go and cook a few mins less.
