Really really lovely thank you! And lovely and simple! Although I was (as always) very impatient and couldn't possibly wait the 4 hours. I split the batch into two bowls, stuck one in the fridge to cool for the recommended time and one in the freezer for 25 mins! Patience has never been one of my qualities! But it turned out perfectly! :-) - 21 Sep 2011


Used different ingredients. I used olive oil, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly - 05 Apr 2009


Went down a treat in the office! I halved the recipe as I only had 2 eggs in. I've been informed that I should make for every monday. Really recommend giving these a go! - 28 Nov 2011
