Just didn't do it for me. I take cakes into work once a week and have a reputation of being a pretty good cook. I through it in the bin. I didn't like the texture, taste wasn't out there. Maybe, I did something wrong.

Am always on the lookout for really good lowfat desserts and this is one of them! Excellent with a deep coffee taste (I used instant expresso).
