This recipe was inspired from the first Thermomix demonstration I attended50g rapadura (or coconut sugar)50g gluten free flour (can use regular)1 egg1 can coconut milkzest from 1 lemon (more if you like the flavour)Place the rapadura and flour into the thermomix and grind on speed 8/9 for 4 seconds. 50g rapadura (or coconut sugar). 1 can coconut milk
