  1. I just tried this recipe and it's wonderfully moist and delicious! I love it that is completely wholegrain and yet so moist and dense. I did a little tweaking with cutting out the sugar and substituting 2 tbsp of brown rice syrup, plus juice of 1/2 orange and cutting down to 1 cup milk.

    My kids will love this when they get to try it for their breakfast. This recipe is definitely on my bookmark list

    I am pleased that you loved this cake. Very clever of you to substitute with brown rice syrup. By the way, I haven't heard of brown rice syrup. What is it?
