  1. Step 1:

    Lightly grease a 23cm x 30cm (9in x 12in) traybake tin or small roasting tin with baking parchment.


  2. Step 2:

    Combine all the cake ingredients in a bowl and beat well for about 2 minutes or until smooth and thoroughly blended.

  3. Step 3:

    Turn into the prepared tin and level the surface. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (fan 160°C, gas 4) for 35-40 minutes until the cake is well risen, springy to the touch and beginning to shrink away from the sides if the cake.
