    yummy! Used buttermilk in place of plain milk.  -  30 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Used different ingredients. since i didnt have caster sugar at the time i tried it with half and half granulated sugar and demerara sugar rather than the caster sugar (same weight overall tho) and then melted the butter and sugar mix in the microwave a little before creaming it. It made the cake sort of a more crunchy half-cake and the change in texture definitely improved it.  -  10 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
