This was sooo good! I actually doubled the recipe, added a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and then prepared as per the instructions. Gave 1 pan to my next door neighbors, and their comments mirrored my own, - "totally delicious!" And I added the recipe to my "make again" file. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!
