Notes

Add any other dry or fresh fruit of your choice to dough. I used tutti fruity and dried cherries.
I changed recipe to suit ingredients available in my pantry. You can use as per the original recipe.
I reduced the orange juice by ½ tablespoon as I felt that it may become too runny. After mixing all ingredients, if you feel that the dough is dry then you may add the remaining ½ tablespoon of juice. I didn’t need to.
