    I used frozen raspberries and this was delicious. Very moist. Warm with a little cream. Yum Thanks
    I have made this many times now as it is a real favourite. I have tried it with apple cinnamon and walnuts, blueberries. But my all time favourite is orange and low sugar dark choc bits on top. I think it was Lindt 90%, 2 tbsp cacao pwdr in wet mix. OMG. To die for.

    I made this today and it was wonderful. Nice and moist and the maple syrup made it decadent. We made it without the dukkah.
