Had this for dessert on Sunday. It was good but not a favorite.

This was wonderful! The only thing different I did was use a entire quart of my homemade applesauce that I have in abundance. I took it to a church function that served a ham dinner. It was the perfect accompaniment! It tasted like pineapple upside downcake. I brought home an empty dish even though there were tons of other desserts left over. This was really a hit and I was fortunate to be able to get a piece to sample myself for the review. I will definitely make this again. It will be much cheaper for me to make than those dumpcakes which have pie filling in them also. Thanks for posting such a nice and tasty dish that doesn't taste like 'dumpcake' at all!
