Cant get the rating to work properly but I am giving it a five star rating. I originally made this cake the other week and beat the butter and sugar with a wooden spoon, but have just made it again but used an electric whisk for the beating, my goodness what a difference, it is indeed a featherlight cake, in fact its more than that its one of the best cakes I have ever tasted or ever made. So many thanks to P.Hollywood for the recipe. I am making two more cakes for this week end for a friends birthday surprise party!!! hope they turn out as good as the one I have just made!!!
I made this cake last week for some friends, it was lovely, very moist and quite light, but I wouldnt say that it was feather light, but it was a lovely sponge, I filled it with the jam and cream, then put fresh strawberries and blueberries inside and on top, lovely. I am making two for a friends birthday next week, hope its as good. I tried to put the stars up but they wouldnt go, I would rate it nearly a five *
VictoriaC68333 posted 7th June 2009 - you said that this recipe with these carrots was absolutely delicious. Can you please tell me, is the recipe right, it states 3 tbsp (tablespoons) caster sugar? can this be right, or is it 3 tea spoons? I grow these Chantenay carrots and they are sweet in there own right, so why would you want to put 3 tablespoons sugar in to cook them?? Can you please clarify this recipe for me, as I am totally perplexed??? Many thanks Viv
