    Pinay0618's Note:

    This casual breakfast treat can also be individually wrapped in plastic and taken on your next picnic or family outing. Try substituting 3 cups of peeled and coarsely chopped tart apples plus 3/4 cup chopped cranberries, 4 cups fresh chopped pineapple or 3 cups peeled and diced peaches for the pears. Or try using 3 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries or blackberries to top the batter. From Cooking Club of America.
