This will go like hotcakes. I use to make it up just before a lake trip and take it along. Was Always gone in a matter of minutes.

This was so good! Very easy to make. The only thing I did to this recipe was increase the cinnamon by 1/2 t in the batter. Couldn't wait for it to come out of the oven in the morning.

This was a real pleaser at work when I took it in the morning. I thought the topping made too much, though. Next time, I'll cut it in half 'cause I had so much left over. Thanks for sharing Michelle.

This was so easy to put together and was inhaled by my guests. I also thought there was too much topping but no one else did! Used butter instead of shortening with no problem. Served with overnight egg casseroles and fruit I cut up the night before - great breakfast for a group of 11 on vacation at the lake. Will make again often!
