Nigella's Clementine Cake

My sister-in-law and her husband are staying overnight, and I thought I'd try making Nigella Lawson's infamous Clementine Cake as a treat. I had plenty of Clementines, and plenty of eggs (the recupe requires 6). Even better, Ms Lawson says that it's best made the day before.

So, I made it yesterday. I've just tried it and.... I don't really like it. It's meant to be a "moist" cake, but I would describe it as "soggy". It's definitely cooked, the skewer came out clean. It's just a bit wet. And bitty.

I've looked online but, with one or two exceptions, everyone seems to rave over it.

Oh well. If the inlaws don't like it, the wild birds will have a feast! Just seems such a waste of 6 eggs
