The most important thing about baking a cake is getting plenty of air in it. You have to do this when you mix the eggs sugar and margarine. Mix for about 5 mins. to get the air in. The mixture should go a pailer colour and be light and fluffy.

Then very carefully add the flour (which should be sifted at least twice, again to get air into it.). Fold the flour in with a metal spoon so as not to lose any of the air from the mixture, or use the slowest speed on the electric mixer. Remember if you are using plain flour add 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

Make sure your oven is hot when you put the mixture in to bake.

Hope this helps - good luck!!

If it is rubbery, pull it out, and start again, it is not eatable. if it looks ready, stick a knife in the middle, hold for a few seconds and if it comes out clean, its ready, but if it comes out with some of the batter in the utensil, it needs to stay in for a little longer, and turn down the heat so it doesn't burn the outside of the cake.
