    I had issues with the batter on this recipe. It was very runny. Also, we thought they were too bitter and I typically don't like things too sweet, so I suggest adding more sugar or a touch of agave and leave out the water. Let them cool completely before tasting. Thank you for the recipe.  -  29 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
