  • “Well I can’t believe I am the first person to review this recipe it’s been on zaar for nine years and it’s a very good recipe. I liked the fact that you get all the different mixes out of one. I made it to the recipe and it came out just fine, next time I make them I will make them a bit smaller so I can have one of each when I have a cuppa. Made for my three chefs Nov 09”
