Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



This is wonderful. Fantastic taste and beautiful presentation. (I used small ramikins rather than the loaf pan.) Rather than cranberry coulis I made a raspberry coulis, a little sharp but not as sharp as the cranberry. (I did it for mothers day and since I am the Mom and I like raspberry flavor...:)
