    • Nice and easy recipe. I added cinnamon and raisins for a little extra niceness. It baked in about 50 mins but I added a bit more flour.

    • I made this! Hardly fat free though with loads of cooking oil. Was moist and nice enough but I've made other recipes that were much nicer. Sorry.

    • Made this yesterday and it's yummy. Ive just realised I missed out the baking powder but obviously wasn't a problem, I also threw in some chocolate chips. Big hit with the family.
