5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add in the sifted dry ingredients with the mixer on low until just combined.
6.  Pour the mix into the cake tin and level the top.  Tap the cake tin on the bench lightly to ensure any air bubbles are removed.  Place into the oven and bake for 55 – 60 minutes.  Check with a cake skewer or tooth pick, if it comes out clean then its cooked.
