Just made this yesterday and the cake is fantastic. Had a couple of hiccups along the way though...
Firstly, I mixed all of the DRY ingredients together, which I assumed included sugar, then I read the sugar should be mixed with the eggs. So I kept going anyway.....
Then, when I was mixing the eggs and vanilla (I used a whole bean, scraped), I realised just in time that there is no mention of the oil in the recipe, which I am guessing was meant to be mixed in with the eggs. So, I was a little worried, but it all came out just fine...better than fine!
I made it in one square tin and cooked for 45 mins, topped it with a gorgeous cream cheese icing and this is definitely going into my recipe book as a fave.
Thanks for sharing xx
