I love making this cake, simple reason that it is not difficult to make.
You just dump all the ingridients in a big bowl , give it a good mix , pour it to the cake tin and , there is a delicious cake ater a hour or so.
I love the frosting also and i was in a palyfull mood so i just added a bit food colour to the frosting.
This is a recipe from one of my favourite cake book.
It is full of easy cake and dessert recipes. It is a Australian Women's Weekley Cookbook called Sweet Old-fashoined Favourites.
I have made a lot of recipes from theis book and each time it was real good.
