If you don't have much success with your icing sugar, you can use  'ready-made' icing sugar.

Also, if you want a low-fat version - substitute half the oil for natural yoghurt. This also makes a smoother and more creamy cake

    Made this last night & I'm a little confused at how high yours looks in the picture and that there is no flour in the recipe list..

    However, I added 50g coconut flour at the end.. cooked for 40-45 mins & its yummy & moist. My son loves it too... So, thank you for sharing. x
