    This taste really good, tried it with fat-free greek yogurt and it was nice alternative to cream. - 05 May 2013

    Some people would argue that there's no such thing as 'too sweet' but I'd have to disagree. This was so sugary that it nearly knocked out my taste-buds, and I'd already reduced the amount of brown sugar (to 180g) on the recommendation of another reviewer! However, the strawberries and sauce were delicious and although I suggest being much more frugal with the sweet stuff I would love to try making this again. - 28 Jun 2012

    Absolutely amazing. Only one tweak needed, next time I'd put in less brown sugar as the topping was pretty rich. - 25 Jun 2011
