"Not bad for a quick version, tasted like they should, but were denser than other recipes I have tried. Didn't rise as much as I would have liked, but perfectly okay for dunking in soup. Needs another/more eggs to rise properly & ingredients should be at room temperature before mixing. Made six exactly & I didn't have to wait."
