Hello all,
Debbie suggested I try to get an answer to my question with a general shout out. I tried this recipe, and they didn't turn out like I would hope. I mentioned to Debbie that there was no baking powder or soda in the recipe, and asked if that might have been the problem. Debbie said that she had not actually tried this recipe for herself, but had copied from an LA chef remake of a submitted recipe. Has anyone tried the recipe, or if not, could someone with access resubmit to LA chef, so that they can track down the original recipe. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, I tracked down the original recipe on a site called The Recipe Link. The problem is that the original calls for self-rising flour! So either go back to the SR flour OR add 2 tsp of baking powder and a pinch of salt.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your help Felicia! I'll try these soon, and if it works out I'll let everyone know.
