I made the recipe twice. Had to add 2 1/2 c. flour.I used the 2 eggs instead of substitute. It was not a batter and not a dough before the addition of flour, I live at 4,500 ft so I do have to add some. The 2nd time I made it I cut down to 1 egg, but it still needed bulk so I added 1 1/2 cups toasted coconut, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 cu flour. Spray pam on the top of dough or it will stick especially in the 8inch pans. Taste and texture was great when it cooled.It did raise ok, doubling with the additions.Without them the (batter) will be running and sticky. I am giving it a four based on the corrections and the taste and texture.
