*Can try subbing with other flour, but I didn't try it myself
***Microwave times vary depending on your microwave. You will need to leave it in for at LEAST 1 minute, but it could be anywhere between 1:00 and 1:45. If you don't know, put it in for 1 minute and then see if it's cooked through or not. If not, put it back in in intervals of 10 seconds.
