Yes, of course - just keep an eye on it after about 30 mins. And keep the toothpick tester handy.

I adore Skor and the Heath bars I used to get. I don't buy many candy bars these days -- I tend to eat them, so I had to quit buying them.

I use AP. I just posted what the original recipe said. It is circa 1950 so I would imagine many things have changed since then!

Had a visit with the doctor today -- blood pressure & cholesterol are better, but blood sugar is creeping up. I've been advised to lay off the desserts for a while, so the Maple Nut Cake project will have to move to the back burner (along with a lot of Christmas cookies).

A question before I go: I've only about a tablespoon of maple syrup in the fridge. When I ramp up for the cake, what grade of syrup should I buy or does that matter at all? Thanks.

Does not matter a bit what grade you use. Let me know if you get to it. Good luck on the sugars.
