As delicious as these are, one thing niggles me a little. They weren’t round. It doesn’t matter what I make whether it is bread, pies, cookies or whatever else, I just can not get things completely round. Who cares though? Let’s call them rustic, shall we? Yes, let’s.

  1. I used olive oil, but you can use any kind of vegetable oil.
  2. You can use spelt or regular flour for this recipe (just use the same amount).
I have converted grams to cups/ounces/tablespoons using online converters. Although I have no reason to believe they are inaccurate, please be aware that I have not made the recipe with imperial measurements.
In addition, many ingredients are different in Europe compared to North America. I do all I can to offer possible alternatives and to ensure the best possible outcomes for everyone. However, results cannot always be guaranteed if you have not used the same ingredients, measurements or methods as me.
Lastly, I do everything I can to ensure that my recipes (and instructions) are accurate and easy to follow. However, I am human, and don't always get it right. If you notice anything strange, a mistake, or even a typo, please let me know in the comments.
