I"m very sorry to say this got a thumbs down from everyone (though all but one still ate it lOL)

probably my technique that meant it came out like a very heavy rich cake rather than a light fluffy sponge. it was VERY sweet (i actually skipped the 50g icing sugar too lOL) and the bits that weren't quite cooked (even though i did it in 2 tins) tasted very strongly of potato LOL. (it smelled like potatoes cooking too, ryan asked if we were haivng nuggets and chips for dinner lol)

would love to have someone else try it to see if they get the same result or it's just me!  think it's worth noting in the title that it's dairy free too so will edit bron's first post.

thanks again bron!

Might have to try it - thought that it might be like a souffle?
