    This is my absolute favourite and just a little different from all the others I have seen. The whole wheat flour makes all the difference

      Made this on Saturday night as the dessert for a family supper with my sons 'in-laws'. Quicly put-together, and very nice flavour, it was easy to assemble and then bake while busy with other dishes, turned out perfectly and ended a lovely supper which also featured alleycats "Stroganoff for a Friend". I made custard and served ice-cream with it, it was well-received and enjoyed! Made for PAC Spring 2008, thanks alleycat! Oh, ps, in step 9, I think that should be two rounds, not ten... I made two!
