“I found this recipe on the web somewhere through one of the Diabetes newsletters I get in my email. I don't remember where so if you happen to know who the author is I will gladly update it here. I have not made these myself but would like to soon. Putting it here for safe keeping. The author of the original recipe added a note to say that this recipe also works well with a mixture of half cake flour and half white whole wheat flour. Prep time is estimated.”
