A few tips and tricks for this cake:

  • Use buttermilk or raspberry/strawberry yoghurt instead of soured milk
  • Put everything in at once in the order that it is written and mix – super simple
  • Use a 25cm round tin and shorten the cooking time to around 40 minutes. You can easily double the recipe – Aunty Billie used to double the recipe and cook it in a roasting pan. This way she could cut it into 4 and share it with everyone, you never left the house empty handed.
