I forget where I got this recipe, but my family has enjoyed it for years. It's a fun and different way to prepare a cake mix.

This recipe deserves 10 stars. This was so good. We loved it. The crust was a little sticky after adding the egg but I oiled my fingers before pressing to the bottome of the dish. This turned out so good I cannot quit eating it. We will definitly be making this one again. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
