Had a sudden hankering, so I found this recipe and whipped it up! It turns out I didn't have enough plain Greek yoghurt, so I substituted the missing 65 grams of yoghurt with more honey. I also used margarine instead of butter, because it's what I had on hand. I had a beautiful natural honey from a local beekeeper infused with star anise and cinnamon, and the fantastic flavours really come through in the cake! It did take longer to bake than I thought (I need to bake it on the next shelf up in the oven next time), but it turned out so beautifully, and it's so so soft and tender, and with the extra honey it's a beautiful treat for afternoon tea :)

The first time I made this in a bundt cake pan. It came out perfect. As written this recipe is perfect.

I've made this for my family over 20 times. Love it. Great for my kids. Very light, moist and good with coffee. If you're eating it the next day, warm it up for ten seconds in the microwave and its like it just came out of the oven.

Very good, even my "Don't like cake" husband loved it. I made a side of orange cream cheese frosting for those that wanted - they could add as much as they wanted; this was part of our Thanksgiving dinner.

delicious cake, although the top was not smooth (i did smooth before baking with an offset spatula) so the appearance was a little off...it really needs no topping or accompaniment...easy to make as well
