I made this recipe for a potluck with a UK theme. Some people really enjoyed it and others didn't liek it at ALL. I used a raspberry syrup and was pleased with how it came out.

I wanted this as my Birthday Cake this past week. We added a few more tablespoons of syrup. If you don't eat it hot out of the oven - you miss out. This was delicious!!! A real Treat!
