    • Halve the vanilla pod and scrape the seeds from the pod.
    • Place the seeds, sugar and eggs into a kitchen mixer and whisk until doubled in size and thick and creamy.
    • Sift the flour and carefully fold in. Pour into the lined baking trays and cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden and set.
