    This recipe works really well. The instructions were a bit deceiving in that it tells you to put the mix in a baking tin but the second refers to 'the pan'. This is the same thing. Follow step number one to the letter but remember that in step two you pour the contents on top of the mix in the 'baking tin'. Aside from that its well worth it, but be warned, its rich. will definately make it again.  -  09 Mar 2012


    Altered ingredient amounts. accidently doubled the milk, so ended up added flour and baking soda ad hoc so didnt really follow the recipe ... ooops.... but it was delicious served with mixed berries.  -  25 Mar 2010


    Made this this evening. Seemed to work well and tasted good, nice and gooey and great with ice cream! Have now made this numerous times and it always turns out great. Have halved the ingredients to make a smaller version. Yes it's sweet and yes it's rich but it tastes great and my partner loves it!  -  12 Apr 2015
