  • Delicious! I used some whole wheat flour, added a shredded apple and cocoa powder. Substituted honey for sugar and walnuts instead of pecans. Cooked for a little less than suggested time as I like it really moist and gooey. - 11/23/14

  • My kitchen smells delicious! However, very confused about the yield. A serving is stated as 1/2 inch slice, the pan is 9 inches = 18 servings = 1800 calories per batch? This is why I always cook by weight rather than volume! Utterly lost tracking this. - 1/14/13

  • This is really good! I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and .5 cup all all purpose. I did not use nuts. I soaked my raisins in hot water to plump them up. The batter initially came out dry so I added a little milk. Would like to make again. - 3/20/12
