Golden syrup cake

Golden syrup is an ingredient that i only discovered when i moved in with my fiancee . In my days off work i used to make pancakes  and i usually eat mine with nutella  but aisling bought one day a tin of golden syrup and made me try as she loves it on her pancakes. I found it a bit too sweet to my liking but is a good alternative to maple syrup and honey . One day we bought a golden syrup cake in store and i really enjoyed it with a cup of coffee, i knew it was a must try at home.
