Step 1

Using an electric whisk, cream the butter and caster sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Whisk in the orange zest, crushed cardamom seeds and salt. 

Step 2

Stir in the Mevalia Bread Mix and orange juice with a wooden spoon. 

Step 3

Bring the dough together with your hands and place on a large sheet of parchment paper, roll out to about 1.5cm thickness. Cover and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the Vitabite in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and transfer to a mini piping bag.
