I made this today using a 20cm plain ring tin.  I sprayed the tin but didn't line it and it came out unstuck.  The tin was the perfect size for this to cut into 2cm thick slices to have with a cuppa.
 
Next time I will still use the 150g of sugar and after milling, will remove 1 tbs for the topping.  I only realised after making the cake that I needed caster sugar for the topping and didn't have any.  Not wanting to mill any just for this, I ended up just using raw sugar which worked well anyway.  :D

I also only mixed for 15 secs/speed 4 for the last bit, didn't want to go over speed 4 with the butterfly.  :)

Such a lovely cake, I had to stop myself for going back for another piece.  ;D

Thanks Julie, I've added a note about using speed 4 if still using the butterfly at that point.

My mouth is watering.

It's a great idea. Easier to cut too.

I'm so pleased to see this cake is getting a work out. It's so delicious but I love it because it is such an unfussy cake and goes so well with a cup of tea or coffee.

I made this today for visitors, it's always a winner and so quick to make.  I reduced the sugar to 80g and it was fine.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.
