1) This did not turn out the way that it does when I use regular flour and real eggs.  It didn’t rise and hold together well.  My husband thought it was terrible, but I ate it all anyhow because it was still sweet and something new.  I’ll probably try to make it again but use some baking powder and acid to help it rise better.
2) After I had reintroduced wheat and eggs this turned out AMAZING when I made it according to the original recipe ingredients.  Do it!
