    Very moist and tender, not too sweet.  -  15 Sep 2008


    An easy recipe to do with children. Good, but a little dry. Best warm with lots of butter or jam.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Very tasty and not overly sweet. I used thawed and drained blueberries. Texture very good. Moist but not mushy. I cooled them upside down in case they would be prone to breaking but the corn meal held its shape without crumbling. Still good the next day. I will definitely make this recipe often!  -  15 Sep 2008
