    Have made this many times now it is a real favourite make it at least twice a month, I use Sultanas in stead of raisins just because we like Sultanas best. So easy to make no fuss at all. And I lost weight as well.  -  06 Jan 2013


    Great easy to follow recipe and worked well first time. Only difference to recipe was I put in 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon and mixed spice and 2 of ground ginger. Will definately make again.  -  10 Jul 2014
