    Very Good
    I used the addition of 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg as another reviewer suggested. I also added an additional 1 C flour since the batter seemed a bit too runny. They are a bit cake like when cooked but for no butter this is a common change to the texture. Lastly, they freeze up great! - 3/9/13

    These were pretty good considering there is no butter. They are so much better with some spices added. I used 1/2 tsp. each of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. After the spices added to the recipe I would give it 4-5 stars. I t really makes a difference!! - 8/27/11
