Shift your corn flour and cake flour over large bowl twice.

Combine oil and butter in a jug.
In a stand mixer whip the eggs, yolks, sugar and salt until it is triple in size and forms a thick pale ribbon.
Add vanilla and beat again.
Sieve over flour and fold into the egg mix.
Pour butter/oil mix down the side of the bowl in three stages. Fold it in while turning the bowl at the same time.
Pour into your lined pans, try to get them as even as possible.
Once in the oven turn the heat down to 170C and cook for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Once fully baked, invert to cool on a wire rack.

- One cake recipe
- One cinnamon roll recipe from the Pioneer woman (I did not post this as everyone has their fave recipe; I used the Pioneer’s woman’s one. Make it ON THE DAY you serve it to prevent the problem I had. Simply cool to room temp and top it on the cake when ready)
- Two batches of butter scotch recipe
- One meringue recipe
- Stabilised Whipped cream ( Whip 500ml of cold thick cream and one bloomed sheet of gelatin to soft peaks)
- Pecans (optional)
Place on cake at the base of your cake plate. Spread with whipped cream; making a shallow dam in the middle. Pour 50ml of butterscotch in this dam. Crush your brown sugar meringue in large pieces on top the cream and butter scotch. Repeat for all 3 layers.
Place cinnamon roll on the top of the cake (you with have the cream to help it stick)
Transfer to fridge for 30 minutes.
Serves with more butter scotch sauce and top with pecans.
