    Probably would have turned out a lot better if the recipe hadn't omitted the water (as I found out by looking at another recipe). - 3/16/12

  • Great texture, not at all the chewy sponge I had expected from other recipes. A bit dry, although that was probably my fault - when I was doubling the ingredients, I added a bit too much gluten. A bit too spicy for children and people with sensitive taste buds. Great with a b. sugar/ketchup glaze. - 4/29/12

  • I have a recipe for Vegan Worcestershire Sauce that I will post as soon as I have left this recipe. You can search recipes for it and make it WAY cheaper than buying it. - 6/30/10
