Reviews for Puffs with Honey Butter
"I would add 2 tablespoons of sugar to the recipe (with the dry ingredients)... even with the honey butter it was lacking (I thought) but we added some sugar to the batter and it helped a lot. They were quite easy to make though! Oh and be prepared to feed a group with them!"
