  1. In your list of ingredients you have written arrow wood? Is this meant to be arrow root??

  3. Yes i'm positive it's supposed to say arrow root.

  4. I tried this recently - disaster! The receipe obviously hasn't been tried out before posted! When I mixed the first part (eggs, caster sugar, flour etc) it came out like dry breadcrumbs - had to add water to get it right. The finished product had the texture of a baby sponge! Most unpleasant - I think I'll give the dessert receipes miss from now on.

  5. As with Geraldine have just done first stage and result,.......dry clumpy breadcrumbs
    I suspect that the flour should have gone in last!
    Not sure what to do now...... May just get th egg whites in and hope for the best!

  6. If it comes out like a sponge, maybe the egg whites shouldn't be whisked up as much. Just a thought. Haven't tried it out yet though.

  7. When adding ingredients I added lemon juice to make it more wet and I did separate eggs just mix it in x it was lovely xx
