"Hi Bente,

I have been meaning to send you an email in regards to the muffin mix you gave us all at the Coeliac bread demo. The lemon myrtle muffins are very yummy (I love anything with lemon in it). I also tried the wattle seed muffins that I found at healthy life Cardiff. Thanks for providing us all with such a great muffin mix!

Kind regards"
