This was so easy and I had it on the table in 15 minutes, which my family LOVED! I used a wedge of a lemon for the juice that was about 1/4 of a lemon. Make sure you get this all over, as it gives a wonderful taste to it! And I sprinkled with powdered sugar! Thanks for a great recipe!

This is a perfect Sunday Brunch dish, easy to make and very tasty - I used an oval roasting pan apprx 18"x 8" and it was done in 10 minutes. Puffed up on the sides and perfect in the center. I dressed it with Cranberry marmalade, sprinkled lightly with sugar and then drizzled with 2 tbsp of Grand Marnier. This recipe would be perfect for an "after the theatre" snack, generously drizzled with Grand Marnier - It would serve 4. Thanks Sharon I loved my Sunday Brunch

I liked this, but I think there is too much butter, next time I will cut it back just a bit. We also omitted the lemon juice, but thought it was great without. I made mine in a glass pie pan, and it worked fine. It was too poofy to roll though, so I just kind of folded it. I think this would be great with strawberries, or strawberry jam or even apple butter. Thanks for a delicious breakfast!
