Really good, and easy. I didn't measure the milk and sugar for the top, but I think I used less than the recipe stated, and they were still delicious. Not too sweet. I will definitely make these again and again!
Very very good. I love that they aren't too sweet and the ginger addition is excellent. I did change one thing, I used chopped fresh cranberries in place of the dried as I prefer them. I had 2 with Pumpkin Spice tea this morning and thoroughly enjoyed breakfast. Really a treat. :D
