The combination of fruit in this dish really compliment each other. It can be made a day before serving. That is if you can keep in the fridge with out anyone sneaking a bite! It's that good! Sometimes we double the topping part.

WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO! This was terrific. The taste is unique and a refreshing change to typical food combinations like apple crisp more like a strawberry-rhubarb cobbler than anything else. Our family loved it. With respect to the "goopyness" I ended up being able to cook it a little longer and evaporate a little more of the moisture out of it which produced a "saucier" dish. The factors contributing to this were 1)I used a larger dish so it lost more moisture from the surface and 2) I think my oven cooks a little cooler than it should. MAKE THIS DISH you'll love it. PS. It works even without the cloves I added a bit of cinnamon instead. Read More

Bananas make this too sweet. I substituted one tart apple and also used fresh pears. Squeeze the juice of the orange over the fruit and it won't be too runny. Read More

This had an amazing taste to it. It did get a bit gloopy and runny so maybe next time I will put in a splash less orange juice. I did use dried cranberries instead of fresh as fresh cranberries are not available here. Read More

This was amazing! It took me four bananas. I used a 9x9 pan. I will use a little less OJ next time. I used three fresh (small)pears. I will also make using strawberries and peaches along with the other fruit next time. Read More

This is excellent! A perfect blend of flavors. I used two very ripe large pears instead of canned as we needed to use them up frozen cranberries and whole wheat flour instead of white all-purpose. I also doubled the topping as we are topping fans. May try some cinnamon next time too. Super good. An easy one for young children to help out with. Mine loved slicing up the bananas. We will definitely make again soon! Thanks Shannon for the easy and tasty recipe! Read More
