Very English (i.e. little taste)! It wasn't bad, it just didn't live up to my expectations. With the coffee, cinnamon and nutmeg I was expecting something really tasty, but it's not very striking, but it does go nicely after a spicy dinner.

The description of this bar cookie is accurately delicious. I made these for a cookie swap to send to college age daughters. They were the only 'healthy' option. The response on them was great. One girl thought they were a good quick breakfast-on-the-go. I made them with unbleached flour and a little less sugar. I personally prefer them without the sugar frosting and wrapped some individually to freeze for a few weeks. I served them this morning and think they tasted even better!

Very subtle spice flavours. I added a confectioners sugar and lemon juice glaze which brought out the flavours a bit more. Very cake like texture and rise and had to increase cooking time by almost 20 minutes to get center cooked. Would be a great breakfast sweet.
