    Petroushka's Note:

    This is from Janelle Bloom's microwave cookbook. It is easy to make and so delicious. She says she got the recipe from friends who own a cafe in Hornsby. She also warns not to overcook it. This is the dessert I am always asked to make.

      Gorgeous flavour with the orange rind, and cooking in the microwave meant that it was cooked twice as fast as in the oven. Thanks!

      This was JUST like sticky toffee pudding and totally divine! I made it tonight for a little farewell supper for Malcolm and I - I am travelling back to England tomorrow! He has about 3/4's of it left - lucky devil!! The microwave method is so easy and it still comes out sticky and luscious.....I have packed up my camera and laptop, but I DO have photos which I will post later! Made for PAC Autumn 2007 and my LAST PAC baby to leave the nest - I left the best 'til last! Merci encore Petra, a bientot! FT:-)
