  1. This cake looks very yummy. Will try to prepare this at home. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  2. I am using your recipe, but will replace the Sultanas with Currents in memory of my Nan, she cooked them on an old Welsh Bakestone (Planc), which I now use as a rest for hot saucepans, I will use a cast iron skillet, I need to get the Bakestone sandblasted first lol, your recipe is good... easy to follow...
