MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 26, 2012

Excellent, delicious & easy! We made it for Christmas morning breakfast, and the kids loved it so much they wanted to make it the next day. To make it easier on us, we make it the night before, and then put it in the refrig for the final rising. I took it out and left it sit for 1/2 hour before cooking it. It was perfect! Instead of vanilla icing, we only had cream cheese icing on hand, and it tasted wonderful.
