    This is a big hit with my family.  I do, however, replace 1 cup all-purpose flour with 1 cup whole wheat flour to increase whole grains.  And I use only 1 cup sugar instead of 2 cups.  We use this for a dessert and often serve it with fresh or canned pears and a little yogurt.  The reduced amount of sugar is very tasty and plenty sweet.
