    This was delish. Made a few changes to mine. I added another 1/4 cup of oats and as I was in the middle of making it I found I was out of coconut but spotted my box of instant apple cider. I added about a tablespoon to the topping! WOW! So yummy and a must try!4 stars

  2. Would you recommend Pineapple in it’s own juice or Pineapple in Heavy Syrup? Thanks! I have enjoyed many of your recipes.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I usually use the one in its own juice, however, since you are draining the pineapple, I don’t think it would make a lot of difference except to maybe make it sweeter. Thank you for your comment. Happy to have you on the site and happy you are enjoying the recipes.

    Would it be ok to use butter flavored shortening instead of real butter? Due to health problems I cannot eat anything dairy. Thank you.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, Geneva, I think that would work for you.
