  • To add some crunchiness and nutty flavors, you can add some pecans or walnuts on the top after adding caramel sauce before baking.
  • Maple syrup, an excellent natural sweetener with deep and complex flavors, is used in this recipe for sweetness. However, due to the high cost of maple syrup, you can replace it with agave or stevia.
