  1. Pre-heat the oven to 150°c/gas 2 and grease an 8 inch round deep pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl mix together the dry ingredients and then add all the remaining ingredients. Mix together till fully incorporated into a smooth batter. Pour the mixture into your baking tin and tap it firmly on your work surface a few times to get rid of air bubbles from the mixture.
