    This was great! I had it with greek yogurt and it was lovely. Good anytime - for breakfast or a pud.  -  08 Jan 2009

    I have the same new years resolution as everyone else, so tried this for pudding instead of something chocolatey - my favourite. It was quite nice and i had some on my yoghurt the next morning, even better. Thank you, nice recipe  -  08 Jan 2009
