Made it healthier. 30 teaspoons of sweetener instead of sugar - 10 Feb 2011


Thanks for this very tasty recipe. I should have done as the recipe says and sieved the dry ingredients. I didn't and ended up with small lumps of flour, so others in a hurry, take note. Will definitely make again, properly! - 06 Nov 2013
