This recipe was quick and easy to make and very tasty.  I baked it for an extra 10 minutes (didn't think it was cooked enough) and it turned out a little dry, so if I had stuck to the recommended time it would probably have been just right! 

I couldn't help thinking as I  made it that it would also be really yummy with some added sultanas that had been soaked in some kind of liqueur/fortified  8)

Wow Karen, that makes it sound even more delicious.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thanks for this recipe.
I have a 21 year old daughter who has just been diagnosed with Irritable Bowl Syndrome after years of not feeling well.
We are just trying the FODMAPS diet which is quite complex to see if the symptoms can be reduced.
This recipe with a few tweaks was so special and showed her that there are yummy treats that is easy to make.
