Made this recipe last night for our church home group and everyone enjoyed it. I added golden raisins and it was a hit. However, my diabetic husband had half of one and this proved to be not a great dessert choice for him. I will probably have to alter the recipe more in the future to make it more diabetic friendly. I put my walnut halves and granny smith apple wedges in my Ninja on pulse for less than 10 seconds and they were perfect to spread on the batter, then sprinkled the raisins over all. Next time I'll take a picture.
