5 stars. A deliscious warm pudding with a great sweet sauce. A perfect winters dessert. (my family enjoy hot puds all year round though :) ). Easy and quick to put together and I used the microwave to prepare they syrup topping. Thanks for another great recipe. Very sorry- I forgot to take a pic....but will post one next time for you
This was very good. we halved the recipe, and cooked it in the oven using the water bath method on a 275F oven and let it cook for one hour. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.
