Something else.how many eggs?-12 Sep 2010
I couldn't believe how easy it was to make! Thanks for the recipe! Couldn't stop eating it. Only advise, 5 tablespoons you have to say heaped or average or flat. Felt it could do with bigger tablespoons that the one I used and a bit less salt but very happy for a first attempt. :D-26 May 2012
