    I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out delicious! As I grow older I'm getting more and more turned off of overly sweet desserts, so this was perfect. I love the taste of turmeric, but it can be pungent--as one reviewer noted--especially if not measured correctly. Make sure you use a proper measuring spoon, because adding too much of certain spices (powdered cloves comes to mind) can overpower a baked good. Thank you for sharing this recipe!  -  18 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
