Soft, moorish and ever so yummy! This recipe makes a huge batch, so you could halve the recipe.

250ml/8.5 fl oz vegetable oil
225g/8 oz sugar
125g/4.4 oz icing/confectioner sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
680g/24 oz plain/all purpose flour

Beat together the butter, oil and both sugars. Gradually beat in the eggs then the vanilla. Mix in the flour, bicarbonate soda and tartar. Stir until combined.
