    sounds lovely but am a little confused by the picture???, it would appear to be ia a pastry case not mentioned in the recipe and has a topping again not mentioned in recipe  -  23 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    1. Confused where to add flour baking powder. I have added this to the chocolate mix while warming. Have had to cool quite some to get it fit for the tin... 2. DO NOT GIVE TO A 6 YEAR OLD AT TEATIME. Most unamused at results...  -  14 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Hi all, sorry for the confusion. Someone posted that photo, which was actually plagiarised from another website, and it was missed. We have taken that photo down. We hope to see one of your photos if you make this recipe! Thanks again.  -  30 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
