This was a nice simple recipe. I loved how quick it was in the microwave. I'd add a little more milk next time but it came out great. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.

Easy and delicious! We served it with some brown sugar sprinkled over the top! I'm making it again tonight, second night in a row! Thanks for posting!
