    If you lend someone a tenner and never see them again, it was probably worth it.

    No, i just bung all the ingredients in, mix with my stick blender, and then turn into a greased cake tin. I use a high sided cake tin normally, but have also used two smaller cake tins and used a chocolate icing in the middle as well. Make sure you butter the inside of the tin/s, to help stop it sticking.
