    the smell was amazing. But I think the recommended baking time should be reduced to 10 min. The first bunch dried out a bit too much  -  25 Apr 2012


    I really liked this recipe, but I think the baking time was too long. I think it should be more like 12-15 minutes. I made a few changes to the recipe-- The batter seemed a little too moist and gooey, so I added a little extra flour. Also, I substituted light corn syrup for the golden syrup (I didn't have golden syrup-- in fact, I've never heard of it). And lastly, I added a tsp of almond flavoring. I'll add this recipe to my collection!  -  27 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'm Australian and from what I understand golden syrup is similar to molasses. The point is to get that golden colour so I think molasses or even the dark glucose syrup would be closer to the original..  -  17 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
