This recipe turned out with exactly the right softness and moisture. I added a 1/4 teaspoon vanilla to the batter and used a tablespoon more sugar in the cinnamon/sugar mix.

Absolutly love this recipe, but from a bakers mouth to your eyes do not mix batters w/your hands;it takes out some of the moisture out of it and wind up w/dry crumbly (not in a good way) happy baking :0))
