Just bought your Chocolate Fudge Cake mix and made it into a birthday cake for a friend, I divided the mixture into two 7 inch loose bottomed tins and cooked on 180 for 30 minutes each, then added cherry jam and butter icing for the filling, it was passed round to 17 people and 3 pieces over. I could'nt believe how big the cake was from such a small packet of mix. Thank you.


Deb's Tips

Whilst recommend you flour cherries to stop any sinkage, this should not be necessary with this recipe as they will be coated with the ground almonds which should do the job nicely. Deb the Bread
