Delicious! The inside was very gooey, not sure if was meant to be like this but it tasted great - 18 Jun 2013


Had no trouble making it, but when it came to getting it out of the tin, it just stuck to the bottom. Am now going to have to bin this batch and try again tomorrow! Update; used parchment paper to line the tray instead, but it fell apart when I took it out. Completely give up now. - 02 Mar 2011
