Very good recipe[edit]

With some trepidation, I tried the recipe from the "encyclopedia that anyone can edit." I needn't have feared; it is quite delicious. Rwflammang (talk) 01:18, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

... and of course it is not allowed in an article. So in time-honored Wikipedia tradition I'll move the really interesting stuff to the talkpage, reproducing the deleted recipe from 2013 here below --BjKa (talk) 11:41, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

I removed the History section due to it having been copied verbatim from another source. The original source appears to have been a blog entry by Stephanie Jolly on the now-defunct suite101 web site. It is quoted elsewhere but without attribution and is otherwise inaccessible. Another source will need to be found. I also removed the "unreliable sources" tag.
