    I have tried this recipe many times always with the same result. (I keep trying it as I love the flavour) It is always disappointing because it always sinks in the middle, quite drastically. (I originally had this recipe on a card that came with Yorkshire Tea)
    I make cakes regularly, am a confident cake maker and don’t have issues with cakes collapsing. What am I doing incorrectly, can you give advise. Are the ingredients at the correct proportions? You say 170 is this for a fan oven or conventional?

    Yes! the flavour is delicious. I have passed your comment to Pam but may I comment as well? I made the cake and the picture with the recipe was the one I took after making- no sinking at all. I did cook it at 150 fan in the centre of the oven and I put it onto an already hot baking sheet. The only thing that I would do differently next time would be to cook it in an 8 inch diameter cake pan rather than the 7 inch.
    Thanks for reading our recipes, have you one you would like to add?

    I have made this cake so many times as it is a favourite of the family. Fortunately I have not suffered any sinking. Recently I have taken to baking this cake in a loaf tin. My oven is a gas fan oven and I always bake at 1 degree higher than the recipe. My I suggest you try a different size baking tin and a little hight temperature. Good Luck hope you get better results for this very tasty cake.
