Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Note the large amount of baking powder. I
suspect this is because in the 30-40's when Grandfather
started whipping these up for the family, the composition of
the flour was different. In any event, I have never tinkered
with this recipe in any way--I think it is perfection!

When Dani & Alexandra were small and we would gather as
a family sometimes for Sunday brunch, they nicknamed
them "awfuls", and so they've been referred to ever since!
