Hi Aunty Yochana,

Is the weight of the flour correct for this recipe? Cos its written as 25g. I'm wondering if it should be 250g. Thanks.

hi joy's mummy,

25 gm. flour is correct cos you have ground almonds... if you find it too watery, add in a liitle more flour to the batter.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I was wondering what kind of tart mould do you use?
Is it the aluminium kind?

Hi Yochana

May I know what is the texture of the top filling? From the picture, it seems cake like. Thanks.
