5

Tip the wet ingredients into the dry and mix in with a wooden spoon or spatula.

6

Pour into the greased Bundt tin and place on the middle shelf of the preheated oven and bake for 35 – 40 minutes. After 35 minutes remove the cake and check to see if cooked through by plunging a skewer into the centre. If it comes out clean cake is ready. If not put back into the oven for 5 more minutes, then retest. Once baked leave on counter in tin for a few minutes to cool before turning out onto a wire rack to fully cool.

When cake has completely cooled set a plate under the wire rack containing the cake to catch any sauce that drips off. Alternate pouring the now cooled sauces over the cake. Letting them run down the funnel and off the cake. You will have extra sauce which is purposely for pouring over the cake at the table as you eat. You make need to heat them slightly to make more pourable.
