This is wonderful! I am not a "sweet" eater but just as you said this is lovely with a cup of tea.I think I would also like to try ithe recipe without the citrus peel. I found it very interesting that this is considered Bannock. I have put some in the freezer to see how they keep. I will post a comment at a later date on how they fared. They would be lovely to have on hand for a quick unexpected company treat .
Made it, have eaten it, the real Pitcaithly McCoy it seems to me; note the "l"! It was first-class. Thank you.
