Just adapted this in the UK as a contribution to a xmas spread...delicious! Why has no-one has reviewed before. Really lovely moist recipe, very flavoursome just eaten on their own. I added a teaspoon of Greek oregano, and used self raising wholemeal flour with just half a teaspoon of baking powder.
