I really liked this recipe. I think I'd have to try it a couple of times to get it just right because as you can see the shape isn't totally square but the taste is wonderful so it doesn't really matter how it looks if it tastes good right?
I give this one a 3 1/2 out of 5. It would get a 4 but putting it all together was a little hard and then it didn't bake the same in all the layers so it's not something I could make with ease (yet).
