    Cookgirl's Note:

    Found in the magazine Delicious Living with some additions and modifications to the recipe. Two versions of this recipe were tested: one with no cream and the other with two teaspoons of whipped cream and the recipe was reduced by two thirds. I omitted the egg yolk completely in both versions. I used 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (or vanilla powder will also work). Walnut oil replaced flaxseed oil.
