"For all the gorgeous chocolate cakes around (and there are many), I still have a soft spot for these crunchy, chewy little cakes. I include them partly because when looking for a recipe for them recently, I found it surprisingly difficult to find one. Oh come on, don't tell me you don't like them - so get COOKING!!!"

Easy, yummy and gluten-free. I didn't know what 'golden syrup' was, so I used corn syrup and got great results :)

I just wanted to tell you all that Golden Syrup is GOLDEN EAGLE syrup. It is golden and can be found in the syrup isle of any grocery syrup.
