Recipe by Honni

This is my son's favourite. He used to bake it when he was a teenager. It is very light and doesn't last very long.

My family really enjoyed this. I had expected it to be a biscuit like taste and texture, but it turned out very light and fluffy. I did add a tablespoon or two more milk to make it not so lumpy and then baked it a further 5 minutes. Thanks for the recipe, I'll definitely bake this again.
