I made this for my family of six. Most of us loved it, but my teenage son thought it was kind of sweet. He still ate it all. LOL My only comment would be that I used a 9 X 13 pan and that w...

Wow!! This was super easy and delicious. I baked it in a round pan (a 9x13 would have been too big, i think) and had a bit extra left over for a few muffins. I ommitted the raisins and added a...

This was fabulous ! I used a 9x13 pan and increased the ingredients for 32 servings and it raised all the way to the top of the pan. I served it to a group of 16 and it was gone !!! No leftov...

This is an excellent basic recipe using oatmeal. I made it into muffins. I think it would be more interesting if it contained fresh berries instead of raisins. Adding a little wheat germ or fl...

Yuuuum!! This was so good. Very moist and delicious. I only made two changes: I put it in an 8x8 pan because it looked like it wouldn't be enough for a 9x13 and i was probably right, it was p...
