This is a wonderful recipe!!! I love it!!! I've made I don't know how many times... when my friends try them they can't get enough. If I don't have buttermilk I sometimes make them with milk and vinegar, or plain milk works wonderful... I love the fact that they are eggless, It's the recipe I allways make when I don't have them and I want to bake something...DELICIOSOS!!!! Thank you so much.
