INFO / TIPS / CREDITS
I found this recipe online but cannot remember whose it was because it was forever ago. I modified it tho, to include sour milk and less sugar and added some salt.
a tasty variation is to add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice or lemon essence into the batter and after baking and cooling ice it with a sour cream or lemon butter cream icing.
