    I've made this recipe several times and will usually omit the additional sugar - I think the natural fruit juice provides enough sweetness. - 10/16/09

    I'd rather just have the berries and yogurt and have eliminated white bread and sugar from my diet to the tune of 25 pounds lost. - 10/16/09

    This would be a good way to use up bread in the summer time when the heat makes the bread go stale faster! Berries are a real hit at my home so I will definetly try this recipe! - 10/16/09

    I"m definitely going to try this. Ages ago I made something similar using shortbread--delicious but rich and caloric. - 10/16/09
