  • remove from oven and cut into serving sized squares before topping with syrup.
  • Syrup:
  • combine all the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil.
  • simmer gently for 10 minutes occasionally whisking to prevent clumps.
  • cool before pouring over the cake squares.

  • I do not recommend children having any with an extra kick.
