Start by making the packet mix as per the instructions. For this one I had to add the water and egg. Mix well until smooth.

Lightly grease the tins and line the bottoms with greaseproof paper.

Pour the mixture into the tins, separating it evenly between the two.

Place in the oven and bake until golden brown. Ours took around 20 minutes.
