This is one of the easiest, failsafe cake recipes I know…
And it’s one I’ve successfully thrown together last minute on a few occasions in unfamiliar kitchens. Hark at me, Marie Berry or what? So, it’s a Delia recipe, which I’ve lost time and time again. The number of times mummy Stylonylon has texted, emailed and noted down this recipe, I blush. I could make it off the top of my head, if only I could remember the measurements. The rest is easy-peasy. (Once baked, don’t worry if it’s not the cleanest knife, once it cools it’ll be nice and perfectly moist.)
