  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (unbleached or organic)
  • ¾ cup self-rising flour

  • Hello, I have a question about this recipe. The recipe stands for "1/2 cup brown sugar", is it "dark brown sugar" or "light brown sugar"? Thanks! Regards. Vic

  • I absolutely adore these! They're incredibly quick to prepare and could not be any easier! However, I find them really sweet, so I now use half a portion of sugar. I'm now about to try them with orange peel and cranberries - should be delicious too.
