These are amazing and light!!!! I really loved them. As I do not deep fry, I just heated up my cast iron skillet, brushed a little canola on the bottom and made them like little pancakes. I ate them with a little spicey mango butter on them. I like Allgirl's idea of adding jalapenos to them. I have put this recipe in my breakfast cookbook also. Fabulous!
