Tips

  • The best way to measure baking mix is to first stir the mix a bit before spooning into the dry measuring cup. Fill until heaping, and then sweep the excess off the top with the flat edge of a butter knife.
  • Ghee or clarified butter is butter that is slowly melted and simmered. The milk solids are removed, and the water evaporates during this process. Ghee is typically stored at room temperature and is semi-solid. For this recipe, measure ghee first, and then melt.
  • 1 medium lemon yields about 3 tablespoons juice and 2 to 3 teaspoons grated lemon zest. Leftover citrus juice? Store in the refrigerator for another recipe.
  • To serve, top pieces with whipped cream or whipped coconut cream and fresh raspberries.
