While looking through my Adirondack cookbooks, I found one put out by a group from the hospital in the town I grew up in. I even found a recipe my Mom submitted which I will be trying next week.
My daughter made a recipe like this once only in large cupcake form. I really liked them and was happy to see and try this recipe.
One other thing, this is one of the few recipes I’ve made lately that made the exact amount the recipe said it would and used up all the batter. I love it when that happens!
The recipe came from the Hamilton County TWIGS Volume IV cookbook.
