Recipe Notes

  • Remember to add sweetener to YOUR taste and the level of sweetness YOU like. The longer we eliminate sugar, the less sweet taste we require which is why sweetness is so personal and I give a measurement as a guide only.
  • To guarantee this doesn’t taste ‘eggy’ add plenty of vanilla.
