    Hi. On your ingredients section, you need 1/2 melted butter. But in your instructions, you asked to put 1/4 cup. Which is the correct amount?

      the last step was “Brush top of mamon with remaining melted butter”… that’s the 1/4 remaining (1/2 – 1/4 = 1/4)

    hello Mr. Ed, are you based here in Pinas, tanong ko lang kung saan pwedeng mabili ang “cream of tartar”. Meron ho ba kayong options if this cream of tartar is not available.
