"I have used both Bisquick and Trader Joe's Multigrain Baking Mix, and I actually think the latter was more tasty due to the inclusion of oats. I also used cinnamon in the topping and adjusted the sugar in the berries. In the past I have even swapped half of the sugar in the berries with agave. I love this recipe, and I have been asked for the recipe multiple times. And to make it even better, you would be hard pressed to find an easier recipe.
"I loved this so much I made it twice in one month. It is hearty, but, hey, it's wintertime! The recipe is very, very easy, and I also cut back on the cream and used half and half the second time. I did not notice a difference.
"The stock did take AWHILE, but I tried to cut down on the time by doing as much as possible while the stock was cooking. The stock was the perfect amount of spice, but I was a little underwhelmed by the finished product with the corn puree. For a two hour process, the corn chowder was not in my top 10 favorites. I am intrigued to try the shrimp suggestion another reviewer posted with my remaining chowder.
