  • Scrape down the sides and continue whisking but adding the flour mixture
  • Once the flour is fully combined, scrape all contents into the prepared tin

  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack and then use a spatula to remove from tin to slice & serve

Notes

Feel free to try alternative flours adjusting the quantity accordingly, I’ve made this using 30g of teff flour an ancient gluten-free nutty like grain
