  1. I just tried these this morning and they are great! I used 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup rye flour and put the crumb topping on partway through baking so it wouldn’t sink down into the batter. Yummy!

  2. Oh my goodness these are so yummy! My boyfriend just gobbled one up for dessert. I used 1/2 C of unrefined sugar instead of the 3/4 C, and they were PERFECT! Thanks for the great recipe :)

  3. I made these and made the mistake of adding the brown sugar into the recipe. I also didn’t do the crumb topping. I decided to bake them to see if they would turn out. They baked up great and the family loved them! Will definitely make these again.
