  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Grease a round cake tin (or a bundt cake tin).
  2. Put all ingredients in your mixing bowl (you can either beat and mix by hand or use the kitchen mixer). Mix until well combined and becomes a smooth batter.
  3. Spoon the batter into your prepared tin, smooth the top and bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked.
  4. Cool slightly in the tin and then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
  5. You can sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with berries and chocolate eggs.
