Reviews for Tropical Suncakes
"I don't know if somehow I messed this recipe up, but these were terrible. The consistency was strange and they never seemed to cook thoroughly. I kept leaving them on the griddle longer and longer each time, and the center was still gooey. Definitely would not make again. Not worth the effort with separating the eggs and then whipping the whites."
"These turned out pretty tasty; they did not rise very much, but the orange zest and ricotta made them light and fluffy, and the strawberry orange syrup was good."
