A Sand Cake is a very old fashioned cake like a cross between a light sponge and a heavy butter cake. It makes for a wonderful birthday cake and can be made in large batches.
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a greased pan with non-stick baking paper.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Using electric beaters, beat for 6 minutes until pale and creamy. Spread evenly into the loaf pan.
Cook for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Stand for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
