    Galley Wench's Note:

    This recipe was originally published in a November 1978 Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Depending on your sourdough starter the flour may need adjusting so suggest holding back 1/4 cup of the flour until determined if needed.

      I substituted Splenda for the sugar in the batter, and had to add quite a bit more starter to get a spreadable batter, and I used a sugar free apple pie filling. I did keep the sugar in the topping so it would be nice and crisp and we all enjoyed it, both the diabetic and the rest of us! Thanks

      This was sooo yummy, almost like a pudding cake. Served it for brunch and the whole thing disappeared. I have made it with peach, apple and cherry pie filling so far, and I think my favorite is peach. Thanks for the great, easy recipe.

      This was delicious! I actually made cupcakes out of the batter but followed the directions as if it were a cake. Toppings included.I onlu used 1 cup flour. It was all I needed with my starter. Thank you for posting.
