MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2013

Ok, I haven't made these yet, but c'mon! 2 1/2 cups dry mix, 2 eggs, and a teaspoon of vanilla? If you've ever baked anything you know you would need more liquid! Someone needs to revise this!

I've made this mix several times and plan to keep making it. It is awesome. I like to add a hand-full of chocolate chips and slightly chopped nuts in the individual batches. It's a must try and great to have on hand for a quick dessert.

HAVEN'T MADE THEM YET AND THESE SOUND VERY GOOD, BUT I WOULD SUBSTITUTE SPLENDA FOR THE SUGAR.
