    These turned out brilliantly for me. I used Nuttelex dairy free margarine and Vitasoy protein enriched rice milk (my daughter has a dairy and egg allergy), they came out just like my Mum used to make.

    Nice and light, but maybe a bit too much baking powder. Will try with 3 teaspoons next time, and would add some nutmeg and ginger to add a little more flavor.

    Made them yesterday, they are very yummy and light, I expected them to be heavy but was pleasantly surprised. The mixture was very sticky so had to add extra flour, maybe my measurements were out, I added dried tropical fruit (papaya, pineapple)and raisins instead of cherries. They turned out very nicely, today they still taste delicious but they went a bit soft on top which doesn't bother me as they won't last past today!!! thanks for postig such a yummy recipe.
