1/2 tsp salt
50 g of Hazelnuts, chopped
oil for greasing
1 tbsp of plant based milk

1. Make sure the milk is lukewarm and stir in the yeast. Leave to one side for 5-10 minutes.

2. Lightly beat the aquafaba with an electric hand whisk until bubbly and frothy and slowly add in the sugar while whisking. Continue to whisk as you pour in the melted butter and vanilla.

Transfer to the lined tin, cover and leave somewhere warm for 45-60 minutes to increase in volume (it will expand to fill the tin).
