Wow :o So do you just not like it? I could live practically on fruit... :-)) :D

Yeah, I love that smell too, but like you I haven't had much success replicating it :-\

Yes, we will :D
My family doesn't like the strong flavour of plain cinnamon, so I usually use mixed spice. They are very fussy :-))

Hm, I would probably use more mixed spice. I have used 1/2 tsp and 1 tsp in the past and the flavour never really came through. I use at least 2 tsp now :)
I sometimes use nutmeg and powdered ginger. It depends what else I am experimenting with.... :-))

I'm sure there must be a perfect balance with these spices that would get the smell and flavour perfect. Having trouble finding it though!! :P

That looks yummo. I might do one for DH's toast in the morning. He likes seeds in his toast. Thanks Uni.

Thanks Uni. I'll probably use white the first time with seeds and see how I go.

Tried this for the first time this morning . .  wow! how easy!  We'll be making this on a regular basis - and also now considering some "additives" - herbs, spices, etc. - for the next lot . . .
