Tips

In the pictures i used “stone ground flour whole wheat” when when it came to using it and after cooking it wasn’t so good, so i just put the plain flour recipe. will try to do recipe in the the whole wheat one one i have prefect the recipe.

It best cooked and let sit in the fridge over night or for the day. It holds together better . Otherwise it tends to fall apart . Taste grate but don’t present well.

You could also make mini ones for a Christmas party new year or just have a few friends over for brunch or lunch
