Delicious except for the half-and-half. Yucky cream effect. Will make again without.

fantastic! I used a hot ginger/pepper jelly instead of apricot jam and only a tsp. of sugar sprinkled over the top. I agree, it would be great over poundcake or granola!

This was very good, but it is very sweet, almost too sweet for my liking. I served this on its own and I suggest serving atop some vanilla ice cream or pound cake to cut some of the sweetness. This would also be lovely for brunch served on top of a good quality granola. I used 18% cream and would probably use 35% cream next time. Thankyou for sharing Jango and Jacques.
