"I served this recipe to six lovely and talented collegiates staying with us last weekend. It went over very well. I also changed the recipe a bit by adding the extra cream cheese and next time I think I would also increase the liquid just a bit. Other than that, I found it very tasty and will add this to my "company for breakfast" recipes!!!!"

"I've made this twice & received rave reviews each time. I did double the cream cheese the second time. It seemed to make it more moist. I think it would also be good to sprinkle cinn & sugar on top prior to baking."
