I have made this recipe several times for pitch in dinners. Everyone raves about it, even people who say they don't like pineapple like it. Now when there is a pitch in, several people request that I bring this. It is sweet and would be great as a dessert. I did have to cook it longer than it says, but it's a wonderful crowd-pleaser!

MAKE SURE YOU COOK THIS FOR AT LEAST 45 MINUTES BEFORE STIRRING AND ADDING CRUMBS, 30 MINUTES IS INADEQUATE. OTHER THAN THAT, GOOD RECIPE, BUT DEFINITELY TAKES LONGER TO COOK THAN STATED.

This is an excellent recipe, but the next time I make it I will use it for dessert instead of a side dish.
