When I took one bite of these I knew I would be adding 15 -20 minutes to my workouts!  They do have a
cake like texture.  They remind me of my Grandmother(Birda Mae)'s teacakes!   She was one of those cooks
that didn't really follow a recipe too, often(Except for 7 up cakes)  So this is the closest  thing I found.  The kids inhaled them I had to make another batch yesterday because Joshua didn't get that many and he barely
got some the second time .  I may have to make them again.  Enjoy!

This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from.
