Susan, what a lovely recipe. I was already going to save the recipe then I read your note about adding fresh Lime & Lime Juice to give it a Pina Colada flavor. I am now committed to baking the P.C. version as it is a great favorite of one of my best friends.
Thank you, lovely lady! Best Wishes. LOL :-)
