It's decent, nothing more nothing less. The recipe as stated comes out pretty soupy so you're not rolling anything out into squares. But that's ok as you can just portion it out in the pan as you fry it. All in all the taste is decent, probably needs a bit more cheese and sugar. I will try it again to see what it's missing. The kids liked it so it will get made again.
