These were nice little cakes. They aren't too sweet and the glaze gives them just the right amount of sweetness and spice. Because I made them with 1:1 gluten free flour (Bob's Redmill), next time I'll reduce the temperature to 325 and extend the cooking time by twice-ish. Doing so ought to prevent the crispy outside and somewhat underdone inside I got this time around after taking them out and putting them back in again to get them cooked all the way through. Other then that, my error, they were nicely flavored and I'm looking forward to making them again and sharing them. A great use of the thrift store Nordic Ware pan I picked up! Thanks
Owner Response: Thank you for the positive feedback. We really do appreciate hearing the ins and outs of your experience and what you're going to do next time around. We liked how you used the gluten free flour, great idea! We hope you've found other mixes since and tried, it's fun to experiment.

Didn't know how theses were going to turn out.

When I was making this the batter was really runny and didn't Look like a normal batter consistency. But while it was baking it fluffed up and became a fluffy cake! These are easy to make, very moist and delicious! The glaze is amazing to!
Owner Response: Liz, Nordic Ware tests all their recipes and refines them, so the cakes are beautiful and delicious. Thank you for pointing out that the batter may not be the same consistency as other cakes. Enjoy! Fancy Flours Staff
