Excellent, easy and cheap. I put cream cheese frosting on them and they were just wonderful. Like a flattish spice cake, could almost be carrot cake without the carrrots. I made them for a tea party for a group of French people and they ate them right up. A keeper for sure and you probably have everything you need at home to make them. I would use the cream cheese icing or a powdered sugar glaze on them though, or vanilla icing instead of leaving them plain, but that is a personal preference.

Very easy and very tasty! I especially liked that were no eggs in the batter so I could lick the beaters!!!! I didn't use a glaze on mine, I just dusted it with the powdered sugar. YUM!
