    I was a little concerned when you mentioned butter, and it was no where to be found in the ingredient list or in the directions. But I went on faith, and sure enough, it came out fine. Well, except for sticking on the side a little. But the taste is great I cut mine in half and filled with red plum jelly. Yum..... Thnx for sharing your recipe, Fiona F. Made for Pac Fall 2009.
