  1. The recipe is billed as gluten free. Spelt is NOT gluten free. Is there some other flour you would recommend using here in place of the spelt? Thanks!

  2. Is the 1 cup of spelt flour the only flour used in the cake part of the recipe (besides the topping)? It doesn’t seem like a lot for the amount of liquid used. Just wanted to make sure.
