I made this last week after the Great British Bake off I used a gluten free plain flour as I have Coeliac Disease and i gave them to my son to sell in our shop I personally wouldn't eat them as I'm allergic to citrus fruits but they proved very popular in the shop and are very highly in demand thank you very much - 03 Sep 2016
