    Hey guys, been meaning to try one of your recipes for a while, chose this as my first one, and maybe it’s my fault for not reading through first, but I found myself in the middle of the recipe and not knowing how much flour and water to use. I ended up just guessing it and thankfully came out good.

    Also I wasn’t sure what you meant by double-dip?
    Fry twice?

    I did that and the ones fried twice burnt straight away.

    Other than that, you guys keep up the great work.

      Hi Michael,

      Sorry you had trouble with the recipe! It wasn’t one that we developed and we didn’t test it out ourselves but I will get in touch with Jennie and get her to edit the recipe. Thanks for letting us know,
