Top Review by FlyingCook

I really liked these plain (and ate two while cooking the others!) but my DH thought they were a little plain as is. He prefers them with chutney or red pepper relish. Mine were a little runny and didn't hold shape very well when plopped on the griddle, so next time I will use a little less milk.
