Delicious! :) In view of the difficulty some reviewers experienced in these cakes retaining their shape, I made mine in non-stick, well-oiled egg rings which I find enable the contents to retain their shape perfectly and which can be safely removed when the contents - in this case the cakes - are ready to be turned. I made the full quantity and we enjoyed these with several meals over several days. They reheat well both in the oven and in the microwave. I made mine exactly to the recipe and really wouldn't want to change a thing. Each time we ate these, we enjoyed them with a generous dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt on top. YUM! Thank you, MarraMamba, for yet another super recipe. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
