Fabulous! I changed the recipe because the lemon filling was not available in my area market. I used peach filling and added 1 tsp. vanilla extract. You could probably use any filling you choose just be sure to smooth out some of bigger chunks of fruit with a mixer or food processor. I wouldn't puree but reduce to bite size. I added the vanilla to the batter. When putting the batter into the pan just allow it to flow slowly like a river to cover the pan bottom. Do not try to spread it with a spatula. Repeat with top layer covering the fruit filling. The batter should be slightly thicker than pancake batter. Bottom line, this is a great recipe, versatile and delicious. Thanks for sharing.
