Additional Information

I use soft brown sugar as I like the caramely taste. I always do double quantities too and add about 100gms dried cranberries. Lovely

  • These are lovely. I used demerara sugar, which was all I had in my pantry, but it didn't seem to matter - the end result was still delicious!
