Bake for an hour, cover with aluminium foil and continue to cook for a further 30 minutes or until the cake is firm to the touch and has shrunk away from the edges of the tin. It may take a few minutes under this time, so be careful to check before the half hour is up.

Leave to cool in the cake tin for about 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to continue cooling.
