Pretty good. This is more like bread than cake, but still tasty. When I was making them, it looked like it need more liquid so I added some extra milk and stirred it by using my hands...the texture looked a lot better.

I searched this morning for a recipe that I could make for breakfast with only limited ingredients and I found this. I was skeptical as I was making it, that it would turn out bland and hockey-puckish. I was surprised. I made mine in muffin cups and used a leftover can of white frosting for the topping instead of choc sauce. My kids really liked it, and it was easy and did not require a lot of ingred. I would make it again (in fact, they made me promise that I would make it again!) Thanks Aimee!

These looked terrible but taste really good. Next time I will attempt to shape the dough so that they look better. Thanks for the recipe!

These remind me more of scones than cake. Quick, easy, very yummy. I served with butter and honey instead of chocolate syrup. Will definitely make again.
