    if you use 250ml milk then add 125ml of the liquid to the eggs, what happens to the other 125ml?  -  24 Mar 2013


    This was rather goooood!!! So tasty and yummy. I really don't have any complaints about this recipe. I will try it again using splenda in place of the sugar. My kids just scarfed it down. The batch as gone just after it was ready to be served. I guess I'll have to make another batch...  -  07 Aug 2012
