Notes

I was up quite early one morning so I pulled out some strawberries and hunted through recipes looking for something to bake. Not finding what I was after I had a go at creating something of my own and was quite pleased with the results in the end. These are soft and fragrant right from the oven and make for a lovely start to the day.
