    I have vegetable and olive oil - could you substitute this for sunflower do you think?? Also I'm not a huge fan of nuts - could you omit?

    Submitted by Mozziemel on 28. March 2017 - 15:12.

    Made this recipe today in muffin form..I used peanut oil 150ml as I didnt have sunflower oil..I cut sugar down to 200gm..and added a handful of sultanas.. tastes lovely but I found it a little soggy and sweet..I would cut oil and sugar down even more next time..maybe the sultans added to the sweetness?

  • I don't know what I did

    Submitted by Gordy00 on 28. November 2015 - 22:41.

    I don't know what I did wrong. I followed all the steps but it came out as mush after 1.5 hours in the oven. Disappointed to have wasted so many ingredients

  • This is so good! Very tasty.

    Submitted by Willybur on 20. October 2015 - 21:40.

    This is so good! Very tasty. I did change a couple of ingredients, I used olive oil & blitzed the pineapple as it was rings, I also used the juice from the pineapple in the icing mix, it's a bit runny more like a thick glaze but it's so moorish, great flavours tmrc_emoticons.)

    This cake is delicious. Better than any cafe bought cake. Easy to make and perfect for a large family. I added a small handful of sultanas to the mix. I will definitely be revisiting this recipe.

  • Thanks for your question

    Submitted by ThermoBecca on 11. April 2015 - 15:32.

    Thanks for your question Poripoo... I probably wouldn't recommend Olive Oil - I think it's heavier and has a stronger flavour than sunflower oil, I would try to stick to a 'lighter' oil... That being said: I've never tried it with OO, so if you do give it a go, let me know how it goes? tmrc_emoticons.D

    This cake is AMAZING! Fantastic recipe, it's super moist and keeps beautifully. I used the regular cinnamon, as I don't have any of that Pumpkin Pie mix - thank you, hubby is particularly happy - he has a new favourite cake!
