    Superb ! it was a bit crumbly/sticky trying to press it into the tin , but once I discovered if I use the back of a metal spoon to smooth the surface kept the oven to temp and cooked it for maybe 40 minutes to get a light golden colour . I forked and sliced it after it had cooled for a minute, it was divine . Will be making this again and again for sure :D - 14 May 2014
