    After seeing your instagram post this morning, I tried this recipe and thought it was lovely. I shared it on my blog (which is mostly for myself, but also for family and friends) and have given you all credit so hope that is ok!
    I had it with golden syrup (as that is all I have really got) but next time I might try making a toffee syrup and adding some walnuts like you suggested. 🙂 x
