Substitute peaches. I had about 2 cups of my tiny peach halves but they would have smashed down to 1.5 cups or so. I also added some ginger. Also I had 1/2 cup of shortening, so I used it all. What would I do with the leftover 1/6 cup?? And did I measure the lemon rind? No, I just zested most of a lemon.
I could never write a cookbook because I am always doing things differently.
But for me, it generally works out. It was popular. And delicious for breakfast, too.
