“This is a recipe that my mother used to make for us when we were kids. It became my brothers favorite. It's a great winter dessert, very simple and easy, one dish clean up. When ready you will have a delicious cake with a sweet sauce. This recipe asks for nutmeg, however if that is not your favorite spice flavour I'm sure you could substitute cinnamon and it would turn out just as great. This recipe can also be adjusted using low fat milk, soy, whole wheat flour etc.”
