Hi Robin, this recipe looks really yum, but I was wondering if you forgot something in the recipe. What do you do with the margarine, milk and 2 TBSP of syrup?

Well it seems logical to me to mix the remaining ingredients.........powdered sugar,maple flavored syrup, butter and milk and spread on the cooled baked product. Robin, it sounds delicious! I think just reading your recipes is contributing to my weight gain!
