180c if you have a normal electric oven
160c if you have an electric fan oven
Recipe is fantastic, have made many many times & I always substitute honey for golden syrup, reduce caster sugar by 25g & increase muscovado sugar by 25g. Everyone who's ever tried this cake loves it

I have an electrical oven, and I'm confused as to which temperature to use. 180 or 160?

I love this recipe. I think I have a dodgy oven, but even so, I only put mine in for about 10-15 minutes and they come out perfect - really gooey and squidgy.

silly me forgot to add the baking powder so it cooked too quickly and remained flat,. But (and dont ask me how) it was still edible and very very tasty.
Deff will make again.

Any recommendations for tin size? Mine is a 23cm, quite deep but dont want large flat cake!

Yummy, yummy yummy!! I haven't made this in a while and had forgotten how good it tastes. I think this is one of those recipes that you can always rely on to come up trumps. It's perfect for when my kids have their friends round for tea but is also ideal for dinner parties. A winner every time!!

I loved making this cake!

Me and my mum made it for my sister with raspberries and icing sugar which was really good, and then I made it again today for my friends birthday and put strawberries and white chocolate on top, it looks sooo nice, and tastes it too! Also very easy to make and addictive!

Absolutely amazing. I have now made this three times. I have found that using bourneville is the best. I preferred it to the really high % cocoa and to the milk chocolate.

To TONIA - I doubt it would make a huge amount of difference if you used honey - I would give it a go!

Does anyone know if I can substitue the golden syrup with a tablespoon of greek honey? I live in Athens and I can only get golden syrup from certain shops so its not always something I have at hand.
