    These were quite sweet and our family enjoyed these!

    These were easy to make but I did make a few substitutions: Bulgarian buttermilk for milk, currants for raisins, Spectrum Naturals coconut oil for shortening. Fried in a little bit of a combination of butter and oil. Be sure to not form the cakes too thick or they will not cook in the center. I like the subtle flavor of vanilla, too. Thanks for posting! Delicious with a slather of blackberry jam! PS does help to have the ingredients written in order. Are there supposed to be two eggs? Step #3 mentions "eggs" but the ingredients' list shows only one. fyi

    Mmmmmmm! My family loved these! They taste like a soft sugar cookie, and are still good cold!

    Very nice, they are kind of like a cross between a pancake and a scone. Would be great topped with fruit and whipped cream.
