    Wondering if I could use gluten free or spelt flour for this?

    • Hi Amanda, I haven’t had much experience with gluten free or spelt flour and I tend to just substitute on random occasions and it always seems to work out OK 🙂 Let me know if you do end up trying it as I am sure others would be interested. Happy baking! x

    I am wondering if I could use Nuttelex instead of butter- to make it dairy free.

I'd love to hear from you....comments are welcomed :)
