Could you add the size sheet pan to be used? I have various sizes.


    Use a 9 by 13 inch pan.


You list double cream in the frosting ingredients, but the recipe says add the milk to the pan – what is it milk or cream and if it is milk, how much


    actually you list double cream cream, not familiar with that sort of cream…


    I didn’t list “double cream” I accidentally wrote the word cream twice. All fixed! 🙂


made this for my s.a. darts team, they absolutely loved it.


There is an ad over the first part of the recipe and i cannot see it no matter what I do. …??? Now what?


Can I use black coffee instead of the Coke?
