If you are a cake maker probably best to follow your usual practice. Not being one, I just whisked the dough ingredients together with my fingers.
Proving is a bit of guess work – I did 5.5 hours, poured into a lined cake tin, baked 35-40 minutes @ 150C.
While the cake is baking make the syrup. Bring the ingredients to the boil.
After a minute allow to cool. When the cake is baked pour over the syrup and
sprinkle with pearl sugar. Allow to soak in.
