My kids really liked these.

MY REVIEW

This is a great recipe, but a bit dry. So, if you put a dish with some water in the oven with it, the water makes them moist and yummy!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 19, 2013

Very simple to make. Great tasting. I made this recipe almost exactly to the recipe here. The only thing I did differently was add two more teaspoons of orange juice to the batter.
