I tried this recipe recently for my son's birthday party, and it turned out very well in my opinion. The one comment I heard from the children is that the cinnamon was too strong, while the adults thought the strong cinnamon flavor was wonderful. I ground my own, which is probably why it was a bit stronger than most kids enjoy. The pudding effect was very interesting, and I enjoyed the entire finished product (no, I did not eat it all myself, but liked the layered effect).
Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
