  1. no. you shouldn’t have to add aditional cook time, and if it would need more, it wouldn’t need much more.

  2. I like it, except if you want to give this as a gift to a college student, you might want to put a little container with molasses in it with it because college students don’t just have a jar of molasses sitting around in their dorms (I am a college student myself, and I even bake alot, but I still don’t have a jar of molasses).

  3. This sounds great! I’ll be trying it tonight. Does any one know if you can bake more than one at a time? And if so do I need to add additional cook time?

  4. excellent.
