We loved this! I halved the recipe, made with lactose free milk and left out the dried cherries but it will definitely be made again! I think next time, it will be with pecans and maple extract (I'm Canadian, eh?). Made for PAC Spring '12
WOW, what a delicious morning treat! This puffed up like a soufflee and had the texture of a soft pudding. The taste was very much like marzipane and made everyone come back for more. YUM! I loved the apple and almond extract in this as well as the nuts. I used walnuts as I was out of almonds and thought that the darker taste of the walnuts would be a good match (which it was indeed). I got up early to make this and must have been too sleepy still, cause I forgot to include the dried cherries. Im sure they would have been nice, but for me they werent needed.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Ill make it again for sure!

Made this for brunch today...got it started a little late. This recipe received mixed reviews from the family. My youngest DD gave the recipe 3 stars, middle DD rated it 4 stars, and oldest DD wouldn't even try it. DS on the other hand said "Mommy, you have to make this again for me...it's sooooooo good!" so he and I both gave the recipe 5 stars. Even with the mixed reviews, I will definitely make this again. It will be so nice to make during winter when the snow blankets the ground. Made and reviewed for the OZ/NZ Recipe Swap #52
