    Great recipe, easy to make, very tasty & full of flavour. They freeze well. Great for breakie on the run!  -  22 Jan 2010


    Made it vegetarian. This recipe is the best! I used honey instead of the sugar, and used equal parts wholemeal flour and wholemeal pastry flour instead of the suggested amounts of flour. I also used an egg substitute instead of eggs and soya milk to make the whole thing vegan - it still tasted superb!!!  -  14 Jul 2008
