Don't open the oven door whilst cooking these as they will drop !!

These didn't turn out as well as I had hoped - but the kids loved them anyway! :) I took mine out of the oven and they were nice and puffy then they deflated and went as flat as a pancake. The second batch I made I cut slits in immediately on removal from the oven and they didn't go near as flat as the first batch. We had these with a chocolate filling and there weren't any leftovers! Made for the October 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
