only took 30 minutes at 180. a little dry but otherwise good


needed only 30 minutes in my oven at 180


I used the wrong sized cake tin (too wide) for this so it dried out, so can't do a proper rating here (will go for middle ground)- be sure to use the right size tin! That aside though I won't make it again as prefer taste of cakes that have butter and fewer eggs in usually.
