Aarrghhh! This recipe is a total disaster!!! I've just wasted three hours making this and it's just going to end up in the bin! The quantities are all wrong, there is nowhere near enough syrup, the recipe only makes about half the pastry that is required!!!!! Please remove this from your site to save other people's torture!!!
