    Jellyqueen's Note:

    I have adjusted the flour amount due to the review stating that they flattened out. Benne cakes are a food from West Africa. Benne means sesame seeds. The sesame seeds are eaten for good luck. I am posting this recipe as a effort to broaden my recipes to include different foods from different regions of the world. Hope you will all enjoy these.

      I'm afraid that these did not work out at all. They all spread out flat as a pancake and actually ran off my cookie sheet on to the oven. I've reviewed the ingredients and instructions carefully to make sure I followed them carefully.
