My Comment:

It's simple but superbly delicious! Very moist and i love the crust....You can reduce the sugar to only 2 cups....I think it's sweet with 2 1/2 cup...Be careful of overflow...I used to bake this using 2 baking pans to avouid overflow- 1 nine inch pan and 1 six inch pan and it doesn't overflow and turns just nice..
