Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

    Super - easy and yummy. I baked this and took it to work - it was gone in 8 minutes flat. Delicous and super easy. I will make again (but only cook for about 45 minutes). :smile:
