My dear friends. For some reason this recipe has developed major glitches. The good husband made it twice (and he is a brilliant baker) with disastrous results. The cake didn’t seem to assimilate the oil properly. As well the centre wouldn’t bake properly no matter how long you left the loaf in the oven. I checked with other experienced bakers and they had similar problems. I shall work on this recipe and republish it when it is perfected.
