A mouth-watering dessert, perfect for cold winter nights and the nice aroma will also make the neighbors curious while baking. Though it looks like a cake, it feels more like a pudding when eaten. It can even be baked in cups, to make it easy to serve. Here it’s made both ways, with one half of the batter in the pan and the other half in cups.
