It was sooo easy. I never bake and it turned out great! I subed all-purpose gluten-free baking mix for their mix (added xantham gum as the package indicated also) and lite vanilla silk soy milk for the milk (my boyfriend is lactose-intolerant) and I halved the recipe. It was too runny when it was mixed so I just added tapioca flour till it thickened up enough. I also used blueberry all-fruit jam. It took about 13 minutes instead of 10. It was so yummy! Didn't feel exactly like a Danish, but I did substitute a lot. Was insanely simple and delicious though!
