Preheat oven to 160°C bake.
For a single layer cake, use a 23-24cm round cake tin (at least 6cm deep). For a double layer cake, use 2 x 20-21cm round cake tins. Grease the tin/s and line with baking paper.

Beat eggs and Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar together. Stir in oil, then add all other ingredients. Mix well. Pour into prepared tin/s.

Bake for 45 minutes (2 cake layers) or 55 minutes (single layer cake), until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand in the tin/s for 20 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Spread with cream cheese icing when cold.

Cream Cheese Icing
Beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add Chelsea Icing Sugar, vanilla and sufficient milk to make a light fluffy icing consistency. Spread over cake/s (sandwiching layers together if applicable) and decorate with chopped nuts if desired.
