I made this for an elderly lady who had lost a recipe from many years ago but wanted to try the cake again. It was a winner, she had two slices in one go and I must say that I enjoyed it very much too. I thought I wouldn't because of the caraway, but it was just the right level of spice and gave the cake a bit of texture. I would make it again.

This is a very good cake. It cooked in the time as per recipe and you can taste the aniseed flavour of the caraway seeds.
