I love it, this is a very tastly cake, so simple to make, Ive made it a few times, I changed the sweetner to caster sugar but still figure its better for me than the usual stuff I eat, given its got no butter and it contains wheat!!!

Making one in a minute at a request of someone for their birthday as a healthy alternative to full fat cakes!!
