  1. Cake is brilliant, easy to make and tastes really good. I used mixed frozen fruit but wasn’t a prblem. My only complaint was there is no temperatures for cooking. Used temps from a similar recipe.

    1. Janet – So sorry about that! We had it in the copy of the post but forgot it on the recipe card. Glad it turned out for you and thanks for letting us know.

  2. I swapped 3/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt for 1/2 cup of the oil (so in total I used 3/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup Greek yogurt) and it turned out beautifully.
    This was a wonderful recipe for using up some frozen strawberries that I had defrosted.
    Thank you for sharing– it turned out fantastic!

  3. When a bread recipe like yours insructs to “mix” after using a mixer do we use a mixr or spoon?

    1. You can use a mixer or just mix by hand as you don’t want to overmix.
      We usually fold in the nuts and berries by hand. Thanks for the question. We’ll update the post.

  4. How long is this good after baking it?? And do I store refrigerated or on the counter ?? Thank You

    1. It should be good on the counter for up to 5 days unless it’s really warm. Keep it out of the sun. Putting it in the refrigerator will change it’s texture a bit.
