    Very eggy and quite a heavy sponge.  -  19 Oct 2015


    Followed the recipe completely and they turned out great. Tasted nice. I recommend you leave them to settle before eating them. Will definitely use again. 😃😃  -  20 Feb 2017


    Made these with granulated not caster sugar. Plus self-raising flour not plain flour & baking powder. Also, added chocolate chip drops and chocolate sprinkles. Decent!  -  26 Oct 2016
