Ingredients

  • ½ cup soymilk powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups plus 1 Tbsp. rye flour, divided
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. vegan margarine, melted

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Mix soymilk powder with water until well blended. This is meant to substitute for evaporated milk, so it will be thicker than regular soymilk. Set aside.
