I bet this would be good with some mango and crushed pineapple mixed in and Macadamia nuts finely chopped for over the top, with some Cool Whip... Might just have to try it to see!

Very nice - next time I might add a bit of vanilla essence or substitute some milk for the water. Lovely and light.

Great flavor, easy recipe. note to Eric T Johnson, if this did not set for you you did not cook it long enough. I gets very stiff in the pan as you cook it. Try it again, you'll like it! Miki
