    I weigh the eggs and then do the same quantities

    ...
    So say 3 eggs weigh 140g ... That's 140g of butter/flora/baking marge creamed with 140g caster sugar. Mix in eggs. Add a dash of vanilla essence. Add 140g self raising flour with a tsp of baking powder. Stir well.

    Put in bun cases. I usually fill 2/3rds full and bake for 10 / 15 mins. Not sure what temp as I cook in an aga!

    Enjoy! Hope they work for you.

    Thank you for that, the Annabel Karmel said 2 tsp of baking soda think that's why it wasn't nice .

    I use 6oz of self raising flour, caster sugar and stork. 3 eggs 1 tap o vanilla extract and 1 tap of baking powder. 1 tbsp of water. Make in a preheated oven 170 for about 20 minutes.

    For chocolate I swap 1oz of the floor for cocca powder.

    Similar to loocyloo except I don't weigh the eggs :-)

    I do the same as loocyloo with the exception that I don't add baking powder. They always turn out light n fluffy. It's how my granny taught me

    I do 4oz of everything. Butter and sugar, cream together. Add 2 eggs. Add SR Flour and maybe about half teaspoon baking powder if I have some. Add a few drops of vanilla extract (not essence). That's it. They are always light and fluffy.
