Prepare the cake form and put a baking paper on the bottom and around the sides. Pour the mixture into form and cook the cake in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 30-40 minutes. You can try to stick in a toothpick to check if the cake is cooked.

Step 5: Decorating

I made it with my 4 yearld old son. Twice.
Still need to play a bit with adjusting temperature as I have added more honey. Taste is simply delicious. Add yoghurt, strawberries, honey, maple siroup or eat it on its own.
My first cake in over 20 years.
Worth giving a try.
Well done.
