  1. 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
  2. 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.


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
