    Pazuru's Note:

    This is a recipe that I adapted from one that I found in one of my old cookbooks. It's amazingly easy to make and it tastes so good for being decently low fat. My father (who is British) insists on me making them for him whenever I visit.These are fantastic reheated in the microwave for a few seconds with some whipped cream on the side or spread with butter. Edit: Ahh - I forgot to add the amount of flour needed in the ingredients. Thank you for the review that pointed it out Beansy!

      I will give this recipe 5 stars despite the fact it didn't list the flour in the ingredients. I used two and two thirds cups and it turned out very good. The taste is great and it is moist. Loved it and will definitely make it again!! Thank you for sharing this very yummy recipe!!
