  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients. 
  2. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, orange juice and rind. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and stir to form a dough. 
  3. Turn dough on to a floured surface, divide in two and shape into two logs. Place logs on a greased and floured tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Allow logs to cool completely. Cut into thin slices. Spread in a single layer on a baking tray and bake in a slow oven, 150°C, for 10 minutes or until firm and golden.
