  1. Just was over at Betty Crocker myself, Bisquick, and made this tonight with fresh pineapple and came to RecipeZaar to see if anyone had entered it - and here it was. Turned out wonderful, as usual - made with Bisquick Lite and used Splenda for sugar & Splenda Blend Brown Sugar and Brummel and Brown Yogurt Butter for the butter. Always have loved this recipe - quick - easy - and wonderful ! Thanks for saving me having to post it!
  2. I grew up on this recipe. I don't think I have ever had another recipe that even came close to being as good as this one. Thank you for posting it as I don't leave my Bisquick in the box and always have to search for the recipe.


I'm 28 years old and a stay at home mom in Indiana that likes to try new recipes. I live with my fiance and he isn't big on trying new dishes, but that doesn't stop me from cooking them. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
