Our webshop is closed temporarily. We plan to be open again tomorrow morning. We are currently only selling a ‘gluten free food box’ intended for coeliacs and those with gluten intolerances. Unfortunately, we are unable to take online orders for anything else at this stage. This is due to continued high demand and limited order processing capability in our webshop operation.

Made this for Sunday lunch pud. Lovely. Only had half a lemon so improvised by using limoncello after the sugar syrup. Only had a square flatter tin so used this and kept an eye on it cooking as it reduced the cooking time. Thumbs up from my tribe. Going to make a double amount next time as on the small side for 5 and there was not enough for seconds.
