    Peter J's Note:

    Kookaburra posted this recipe to the Aus/NZ forum after her sister-in-law Linda cooked it and she asked for the recipe. I really enjoyed it as well and Kooka gave me permission to post, I agree with her post it's a wonderful recipe you can enjoy the next day (although a little crumbly) or you can make 3 months in advance. I cooked around a week ago it has developed some extra flavour and texture, so doing a week in advance is probably worthwhile. Preparation time does not include overnight soaking time. In fact I soaked mine a few days occasionally adding more sherry and brandy for a moister and 'groggier' taste.
