Recipe Notes

Yes you can freeze.

Yes you can make in 2 round cake tins or loaf tins.

I usually dust with icing sugar but occasionally I make a creamy cream cheese topping.

Creamy cream cheese topping is about 100 grams of cream cheese mixed with about 200g of whipping cream a touch of lemon juice and a little icing sugar if you need the sweetness.  This can be piped on top or as a dollop on the side.  Also great with many other cakes and brownies. No real recipe I make it up as I go along.
