  1. Would love to try this recipe. However, I’ve not come across the decilitre measurements in a recipe before so will have to convert.

  2. Hi! Oh yes we use them in Finland quite alot in cooking. Actually for this recipe, the measuring is not so percise so you could just roughly estimate without measuring so the batter looks good, lt too loose or hard. You can add something like 1 generous cup flour, 1/2 oats and measure the liquid with freehand (about 1/2-1 cup milk) until it looks good. If it looks too liquid, add more oats or flour and vise versa!
