The dough was fluffy, they felt fluffy when I squashed the dough, they even had a fluffy texture after they were baked. It must be the soy flour in them as I've never used it before.
This recipe is from the "More-With-Less Cookbook" by Doris Janzen Longacre. The front of the book says "suggestions by Mennonites on how to eat better and consume less of the world's limited food resources." Sounds good to me. There are sooo many recipes in here that I want to try. Luckily, our library has a copy of the spiral bound 25th Anniversary Edition (originally published in 1976) so I can take it out as often as I want.
See how "fluffy" they are?
I had to squash down the batter with my hand
to make these flat and dense.
