These had a very nice flavor, but didn't rise as much as I expected them to. I think next time I will add more yeast. I usually use a packet or the equivalent from a jar and suspect the 1 teaspoon listed was not adequate. However, with yeast I never know if it just wasn't my lucky baking day. I did use sugar instead of splenda. Thank you for sharing your recipe! *reviewed for PAC Fall '07*
