      These were so horrible they could not be eaten. First they did not rise at all and secondly after 15 minutes the bottoms were brown but not the tops and the middle was gooey. Worst of all they had a very sour taste. Could that be because the amount of cream of tartar is wrong? Or, could it be that the unsalted was old? It did not look right when I took it out of the box.
