    • I agree with the previous comment by SpookyHelen. The recipe is unworkable with the indicated quantity of flour in it. I would suggest reducing the flour content to a range between 40g and 60g depending on how thick you wish the sauce to become.

    • Not the best recipe at all, tastes just like flour. Wouldn't recommend this at all, maybe try 40grams of flour.
