  1. This was sooo good! I love vanilla but 1 tablespoon is WAY too much. I reduced it to a little over a teaspoon, that is for sure a mistake in the recipe.

  8. Very good recipe I used an Omega Egg substitute and the recipe was still great(and cut the fat down even more). I will definitly put this one in my recipe book.
