Brilliant recipe, although only makes 12 not 24. I added allspice instead of the nutmeg, was lovely and tasted very christmassy. Will certainly be using this recipe againx - 30 Jan 2014


Quick and easy, only made 12 with quantities given and should have cooked about 5 mins longer. Will definitely make again with a couple of tweaks. - 11 Jun 2013
