This recipe took FOREVER to reach. Way too many hours on the web, way too many hours in the kitchen, tweaking (while thinking maybe I ought to get a life?!) Anyway, here it is, medicine for the soul in the crisp, cold of Autumn. Please don't be deterred by the amount of spice as it really is imperative in producing what slowly becomes the most delicious, mellow, sticky blend of...sigh! As a rule I tend to weigh ingredients when baking for accuracy, however should anyone be interested in this but unsure of the conversion from grams to cups, just say the word and I'll send them over :-)
