I made a few changes myself (added a lot more flour, didn't add any sugar or salt as I prefer to avoid them), but I love the simplicity of the recipe - it's so easy! :D - 05 Mar 2015


Didn't really like it the first time, so I made a few changes. Instead of melted butter/margarine I used a sheet of wax paper and used olive oil. I used whole wheat flour (about 240 - 250gr), left 2 tablespoons (heaped) of raisins in hot tea for about 5 minutes, used 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and only one teaspoon of salt. During final stages of kneading lightly (only about 4 times) I rolled the dough out thick and added the raisins and about 1 tablespoon of honey. After lightly mixing again I cut into strips and using a brush, lightly added some olive oil on top of each strip. Came out really nice. Perfect for tea/coffee. - 16 Feb 2015


Brilliant! Don't think I'll be buying the shop's ones again. I've experimented with different herb toppings. But wondered if anyone would suggest a sweet version? - 26 Oct 2015
