This is a great recipe from the WI that I have modified to make slightly lower in sugar and gluten free. I make it all the time. It is so easy and makes a really tasty treat.
If you want to make a vegan version then replace the egg with 1 tablespoon of chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water. Leave the seeds for 10 minutes before using in the recipe below. Replace the butter with the equivalent amount of vegetable fat. Replace the milk with dairy free alternative of your choice.
