these are gorgeous! My scales are broken so I was just throwing the ingredients in and it's so easy to follow they can't go wrong- mine still turned out perfect! I used dark sugar and slightly less syrup (had to compromise with what was in the cupboard) and some vegan egg substitute (not vegan or veggie but it's always there if I get the urge to bake) You can really smell the golden syrup when they're cooking, so comforting. I will definitely make these again! - 22 Jul 2011
