“I made this just recently, it is fabulous... and yes, 5 teaspoons baking powder! If you do have any leftovers, this freezes well. This can also be baked successfully in muffin tins, you will get about 27-28 muffins, be sure to adjust baking time. If you want to boost up the heat, add in some cayenne pepper.”
