Nice recipe as always! The only thing I'd encourage you to change is the order in which you list the ingredients. Alphabetic order isn't really relevant to the recipe. For example you have three different flours in this one; it would be much easier to follow the recipe if all the ingredients were listed in order of use so we wouldn't have to go searching through the list for each one's amount. Other than that, love your recipes and enjoy your videos!
