Most Helpful Review

These are lovely and soft and delicious. They also taste quite authentic, very much like the ones my mum would make. The only thing I would change is the egg wash - they look much better (all golden and brown) if you just brush them with egg only, rather than the egg and milk mixture. See all activity
