125gself raising flour

Preheat the oven to 170°C with the fan on.
Mix the ground flax seeds with the water and leave to sit to form a flax egg and set aside to thicken.
Melt the vegan butter on a low heat. Once melted remove from the heat set aside.
Using a sieve, sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl – the the flour, and 2 sugars.In another bowl mix the wet ingredients – the fat (melted butter), liquid (the plant milk), and the binder (flax egg) and mix well.
