Bernard Bake Off

Our second recipe of the Bernard Bake Off series is Donna's family favourite, Jamaica Cake. It's really easy to make, so a good one to try out with the children if you have any. This cake is made right in the same pan that you start out with so good news is there are no extra dishes to wash up afterwards. Win win.

  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups of pecans
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
