A cookie texture, with a cakey interior.
I only had wholemesl rye flour, and couldn't get the dough to bind without a couple of tbsp milk added. It was easy enough to handle afterwards and cut well. The flavour is quite savoury, so needs additional flavours. I added milk choc chips to this, and will try with cheese and herbs in the future
