My mom used to make this. She always put the cinnamon and sugar in the batter, then put a little extra on top. Makes it taste much better.

This was just bad. Everything about it, texture, flavor; no one liked it.

Just an OK dessert. I a little too bready. Not awful but definitly not a memory maker.
