• 4 tsp mandarin zest, grated
• 2 tsp lemon zest, grated

3. Combine the flour, yeast, and lemon and mandarin zest, then add to the egg mixture.
4. Pour half the milk and the liqueur into the mixture and continue to beat, add the remaining milk and continue to beat (if the mixture becomes too runny, use less milk).
5. Spread the mixture onto the baking tray, smoothing the surface with a spoon. Bake for 3-35 minutes.
6. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool in the tray. Cut into rectangle pieces and dust with icing sugar before serving.
