    Delicious. Made this today. I only used 130g of sugar which is still sweet enough, would also be great with custard. Have also added to my favourites. Thanks for sharing.

  • Lovely slice; made yesterday;

    Lovely slice; made yesterday; tried it warm from the oven - nice then, but even better cold from the fridge just now for morning tea! Would be a lovely alternative to sticky date as a winter sweet with double cream or mascarpone. Thanks for the treat and yet another to add to my burgeoning fav recipe collection!
