Assembly and finishing

Nutrition tip

Muscovado sugar is an unrefined whole cane sugar. It is dark brown in colour and has a high molasses content. As it is unrefined, it also has a high mineral salt, potassium and magnesium content. For a gluten-free alternative, replace the 70g of plain or strong flour with 120g of potato starch and 90g of buckwheat.
