“Trying to replicate a recipe from the Organic Bakery in Bondi. Found this on You need to add 2tsp Xantham Gum to the second step but it did not recognise this as an ingredient. The recipe did also nor specify how much water to add. I start with 1 cup fruit juice and add more to get the right consistency. I also recommend using fruit juice instead of water to make it slightly sweeter.”
