An even richer version of this luscious treat! This smells unbelievable baking in the oven. Prep times does not include standing or cooling time.

This dish feels like a dessert in a fancy restaraunt. I love the texture. Next time, I am going to try leaving out the lemon and replacing it with cinnamon. I think that would be a nice twist. I put ice cream on top instead of cream. Loved it!

Delicious! I made this in a souffle dish and it puffed up nicely to the top of the looked quite impressive. This is a wonderful breakfast dish, especially when you have special guests. Made as written but did not serve with the heavy cream. This recipe is perfect as is but I also like katew's suggestion to add some almond extract. Yum! Made for 1-2-3 Hits.

This is an excellent dessert or breakfast.I made this last night and when cooked just turned out the oven till morning and my result was perfect. I forgot my almonds on top and wish I had dropped some almond essence into the mixture but will do so next time. My pears were Buerre Bosc and worked well. Made for ZWT 6.
