no rules when making this . It tastes like a sticky bun. I would recommend dried cranberries or dried cherries too maybe with almonds. My husband loves is his Sunday treat and it reheats in the microwave nicely in a few seconds.....Be careful when inverting on to a serving plate..The plate or cake plate needs a bit of a rise so hot sauce does not run all over. It needs to be inverted immediately after removing from the oven with care.
The baking time is minimum giving if it browns too fast i cover with a loose piece of foil and have baked 5-8 mins needed :)
