    Easy, quick and delicious! I had seen other recipes that called for the dough to rest for 18 hours and I was NOT in the mood to wait for that long. Glad I found this amazing recipe.

    Wow! Fast and simple ... only problem I had was not knowing what # to use when frying on low heat. 2 was too low and I had to raise temp after flipping to compensate. Next time I’ll set dial to 3 or 4. 🤔

    These are insanely good!! I have to control myself because I just ate 2 right out of the skillet and they are so delicious I would eat the whole batch if I could. Will definitely make this again. I didn’t have cornmeal so I used some sesame seeds. You can skip it all together if you don’t have. I griddled in butter. And, I needed to raise the temp on the cooking a bit to allow them to cook fully. But, best thing I have made in ages!!

    Aside from them taking longer to raise (the house is cool) they turned out good. I will be making these again!

    So delicious. Easy. I made them on a griddle so I didn’t have to do batches, which was nice time-wise. Will definitely make this recipe again.

    Takes a little practice. 2nd batch better than the first. lots of nooks and crannies with second batch. the 1st didnt rise very well. getting the heat right on the frying part was also a challenge. over tasty

    Very yummy! I personally would add another half tbsp of sugar though. I found that putting the dough in the pan risen/rounded side down for the first side helped them cook flatter rather than ending up somewhat domed. :) thank you for a yummy recipe!
