  1. This recipe has an omission. How much flour is required? Also, I find it hard to believe free-range eggs are required. Eco/Political statements, however well-intentioned, have no place in a recipe.

  2. I agree – the quantity of flour is missing and if anything it should be “2 eggs (large / medium / small?), preferably free range”. Then it doesn’t say what the oven setting is: over/under or other?
