Before I give you the actual recipe, however, I should apologise for suddenly going all cups on you instead of grams and mls. I made this with the toddler - the insanely impatient and fidgety toddler - and it was much easier to quickly chuck everything into cups than to try to get the scales out. I hope it makes sense.
This is, by the way, a great cake to make with kids, as they can just throw everything together in one bowl and whisk it. No need for stiff egg whites and careful folding, or anything like that.
