Very easy! I suggest modifying the cook time since I had to bake mine for 37 minutes. A very sweet and satisfying dessert. Make sure you have plenty of milk!

i am not sure why mine did not come out right. the taste was great, but it was very thin. maybe i'll give it another try.

What an easy & tasty idea! I used a quart jar of freshly canned pears. My blueberry muffin mix was larger than the 7 oz pkg. but I increased the pear juice to compensate. This turned out very nice and was absolutely delicious with ice-cream on top. Thanks for a great time-saving recipe.
