    This fast, easy, and delicious. I did do somethings differently. First I added about 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the batter mix. Secondly, I baked the batter for about ten minutes before adding the fruit (I used red delicious apples, turned out fine) Lastly, I sprinkled brown sugar on top, giving it a nice brown color after it baked. My family just loved it!  -  24 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    You certainly don't need to know your way around the kitchen for this one... but don't be put off by the simplicity of the recipe, either; it's really good! I used half light brown sugar in mine, added a few drops of vanilla to the batter, and prepared it with 2 cans of drained peaches (spread evenly over the top), which I also sprinkled with cinnamon. What a quick, easy and delicious week-night dessert. Thanks, Rosemarie.  -  12 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe. It is so easy. I made it with frozen mixed berries and this turned out wonderful as well. It is great with ice cream!  -  31 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
