This is by far the weirdest thing I have ever made. I didn't have any eggs, but the man wanted dessert, so I intended to deliver. Boo. The dough was much more like a paste, and the boiling sugar water you pour over the top was totally liquid, as expected. The directions say to bake until "set," and at 35 minutes, it was still totally liquid. I let it stay in until it had been about 50 minutes, and it was still pretty runny. After it started to cool, it became clear that the sugar had been boiled to the hard ball stage, because it became totally hard and sticky when you tried to eat it. The flavor wasn't great either, unless you like the flavor of dark molasses. I'm a total dessert person, and I couldn't eat more than a bite or two. Total bummer! Now I will have to soak the pan in hot water just to get rid of the leftovers. This is the first time in over 18 years of cooking that something just has turned out terribly. Very sad.
