Allergy advice and simple swaps:
- For a gluten-free alternative: Swap wholemeal spelt flour fora mix of buckwheat and arrowroot flour (2:1) or a gluten-free flour mix.
- For a dairy-free alternative: Swap cow’s milk for coconut-, soy-, almond- or rice milk.
- Transfer your batter into a saucer bottle and drop batter into the frying pan for an easier, less messy option.
