This was good - served warm with ice cream. It was very sweet and next time I will try less sugar in the topping.

This is a scary recipe! I assembled everything and poured over the boiling water -- and based on how it looked then, I thought, yikes, this will never work. But it did. I thought it called for way too much sugar for the topping -- so did the kids cooking with me. But it all came together wonderfully. It's not a dinner party dish -- because you can't get it out of the pan gracefully -- but it is so delicious. There was a major scuffle over who got the last piece. Dad won!
