Wow lotsa questions! First of all I use the edmonds cookbook recipe. If the mix is too dry add a bit more milk and don't overcook! Recipes don't always have to be followed to a tee because every oven is different. As for how long the cake will last depends on how yummy it is haha just joking! I wouldn't keep one with whipped cream more than a day purely because of the cream -it will taste yuk on day 2! Large airtight container will keep cake (naked)fresh for a day maybe 2 but baking is at its best when eaten on the day.good luck

We like this one-
Banana Chocolate Yogurt Cake
2 cups sugar, 200g butter or marg, 3 cups self raising flour, 2 eggs, 2 tsp baking soda, 1 cup boiling water, 1 cup plain yogurt, 1 ½ tsp vanilla essence, 2 mashed bananas, ½ cup cocoa, ¼ tsp salt. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Turn mixture in to medium roasting dish and bake at 180C for an hour. That’s it. Note, I pour the boiling water over the butter/marg to melt it. You don’t have to use plain yogurt. I have used fruit flavoured and it is lovely. I have also left out the cocoa altogether and not replaced it with anything. Bananas can be replaced with other soft fruit. So there you go. Very versatile. It will work fine in two smaller cake tins or even as muffins. Adjust cooking time to suit. I don’t actually know that it ever takes an hour to cook. Depends on oven I suppose.
