    I done this for my mum on her 93rd birthday and she loved it. She is a diabetic and there was no comeback healthwise about it. And also my parner loved it as well cos she is so fussy !!!?!  -  23 Dec 2013


    I found this far too dry after mixing & added 2 eggs. Can only wonder whether or not I was supposed to add the juice from the tin of pineapple too. I didn't have any dried cranberries so substituted with a mix of dates and drained glace ginger and I didn't use any sugar substitute. I cooked it for 45 minutes & it was delicious. It would be nice as a pudding too, with custard.  -  27 Jul 2013
