  • Pre-heat the oven to 185°C
  • Using a paddle attachment on your kitchen aid (or using a whisk and mixing bowl) whisk together the sugar and oil until smooth then add eggs one at a time making sure they are fully incorporated
  • Separately sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cake spice then add this to the sugar and egg mix on a low speed until fully incorporated
  • Roughly chop the nuts, then add along with all the other ingredients and carefully fold into the mixture
  • Pour the mixture into a loaf tin (22cm x 12cm x 6cm) and cook in the pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes
  • Check to see if the cake is cooked using a skewer. If it comes out cleanly it's ready
