I posted on here about a month ago as I got given one. They are the easiest cake to make. As long as you add the flour, sugar, oil, eggs, salt & baking powder you can do what you like with the rest. You just stir and don't have to worry about getting enough air in or bashing it out.

I just used up what we had in the cupboards from Christmas so the first one I did was eating apples, cranberrys & glace cherries with vanilla essence. I then kept one of his babies and did Cherry & dark chocolate!

It really was delish. Hoping to get another one sometime.

Twinkles gave me one, made it and gave mindees one each ( the older ones) to take home.

DH took half of the cooked cake into work for the lads there was so much of it. :)

I received a Friendship cake yesterday too! I have to keep reading the instructions to make sure I'm doing everything correctly (only stirring it well so far though!). Apparently it's day 4 today so will need to add the flour, sugar and milk later.
My SIL brought some that she had baked and it was delicious.

All the women at my mums church used to do this when I was a kid. There was always mixture on at least one of their window ledges brewing away.
