UPDATE 8/21 –

substitutions: didn’t measure the ingredients too well, and used baking soda instead of baking powder, and used a cup of grated apple and a cup of grated carrot. didn’t make the cinnamon butter either.

but they didn’t rise and came out weird. try again using more baking soda, maybe?
