    Made this today and had to use the whole egg, not just the yoke as it was to dry. Also at the end i had to scrap the spoon and use my hands to combine it all.

    I dident use 200g of nuts, id say more 100g as once chopped they go a long way. Id also use a bit more cinnamon next time as the flavour isent that strong.
