  • 1. Mix all the wet ingredients together.

  • 5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • 6. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

It’s not rising or I’m too impatient to wait, what can I do?

Place a cup or glass of hot water in the oven and heat to the lowest setting for a couple of minutes. Turn oven off. Place heat proof tray containing the dough into the oven covered with tea towel. Wait 15-30 minutes.
