this recipe doesn't work with 200ml flour,either use more flour of less water to dissolve the yeast - 25 Jul 2012


With 300g of flour the recipe works fine; I think it could probably do with a tad less butter after having made it and it was self greasing on the tin, so next time I'd go for 100g. Otherwise great! - 06 Mar 2015


This recipe really doesn't work, looks more like a pancake batter even after extra kneading with the stand mixer and proving. Such a dissapointment. - 24 Mar 2014
