So good! Everyone loves it, I will be making again soon :) Followed recipe very closely, just added some heavy cream to make up using non-fat milk and just a sprinkle of the cinnamon. When served warm with powdered sugar, it was incredible! I sprayed the pan heavily and it still stuck on the bottom, really the only problem I had. Was ready in exactly 50 minutes as stated. Thank you!
