Delia's Easter Simnel Cake

I plan to make this for my aunt who is in a nursing home but (similar to the Christmas cake query) I want to make in an oblong shape as it is easier to cut and share. Would this recipe fit the 20 x 26cm tin or would I need to adjust.

I have spoken to the very helpful Jill Fade at Meadowsweet Flowers and the 12 apostles are on their way! Thank you for that link.

For Eileen

Hello Eileen,

I estimate the cake capacity of the oblong tin is about 20% less than the 20cm round tin. I don’t think it’s enough of a difference to reduce it to a 2 egg mixture.

The recipe as it is may fit nicely into the oblong tin or you may have a bit left over. Perhaps if you do have a little too much it could be baked in the loaf tin to about the same depth of the oblong tin.

Best wishes
