These were good, but there seems to be too much of the dry ingredients. I also misread and got a 6 oz. can of pineapple instead of 16 oz. As I didn't realise it until I was already making the recipe, I couldn't go out to the store. (the cats wouldn't go either as they were napping!) I wanted to give it some more substance, so added some pine nuts and sliced almonds. I have to agree with the other reviewer that this may be better in a larger baking dish.
