Notes
All of my recipes are gluten, dairy, and soy free. If you don’t need to follow these restrictions, you may easily substitute the items I listed for regular versions. In this recipe, use all purpose or whole wheat pastry flour instead of the GF baking mix; use regular milk instead of almond milk.
