My baby group used to meet for coffee once a week to stop us all going mad and this recipie came from one of the mums -Helen Fort, to whom we are all immensely grateful as my kids love them, and now also love making them themselves. My son says we need an electronic version as if we lost our (very battered) hand written copy he would be devastated! Thanks Helen!
