This is a very nice recipe. I altered it a bit though. The batter didn't seem sweet enough, so I added 2 more tbs. of sugar and another tsp. of cinnamon. This made it a bit sweeter and I served them with vanilla ice cream. Also, it was really hard to keep the halves together after taking the pit out, so I would advise just frying the halves instead of trying to keep them whole. Overall... they were really yummy!
