  • I used a 10" iron skillet and it was the perfect size (line your oven w foil because it boiled over just a bit). This IS a tasty & easy recipe, I tried it today (with Greek yogurt and a bit of omega-3-rich oil instead of eggs, since I was out). My DH REALLY liked it and I thought it was decadent! - 1/2/11

  • crispy, sweet frisbee for husband's birthday. too sweet, but they liked it. batter should be doubled for my cast iron pan. it didn't even get to the edges. we had crispy pineapple edges. also, 45 mins may be too long. i did sub whole wheat flour, but increased bak. pwd. still 2 dense. - 5/11/10
