A funny story related to this recipe... My sister has tried several times following the instructions to a "T" and still somehow it never comes out for her. She has started using a different recipe entirely! I find this completely mind boggling!
So my advice to you... put a lot of love and magic into this recipe. I think it's a real special one that takes on whatever the baker wants it to.... add some walnuts if you'd like! My mom does but I omit them... and let me know how it turns out!!
