    It's an odd recipe... but Even a House husband like me can make this work. Bulk up the sizes around 15% what a lot of baking powder.. it works though. Used cooking apple... keeps a bit of sharpness, cook slightly low and long for more moist. Only had dark brown and granulated sugar... mixed and worked fine. Four (in a week) year old was helping with the mixing etc..
