I got this recipe from one of the cookbooks I bought in the Johnson & Wales bookstore. I like to make this one when I have the time.

The flavor is ok - a bit plain, but the texture is heavy and coarse. I made it exactly as written except for adding a little extra vanilla. I had to give one star because I couldn't bring myself to serve it to anyone.
