Author Notes: “We love this recipe because we can do it overnight and then just throw it in the oven when we all get up and then can leisurely eat it, because it stays hot a long time out of the oven. Kids and adults alike like raisin bread and it cuts into nice squares and tastes great just with powdered sugar; more maple syrup is not necessary. “ loubaby

I'm confused - recipe directions include cottage cheese and orange juice, but these items aren't listed among ingredients and amounts.
