Everybody in the family LOVED this! I think I made this in an 8x8 inch square pan. I sprinkled some brown sugar on top, gave it a nice cruchy crust.
Delicious! Very easy to make. Bake time was in 9x9 Pyrex dish was over 60 minutes. Cooled cake is 2 3/4 inches high at the center. I'll definitely use this recipe again!
Delicious!! This goes together very quickly and easily. I had to bake it in a 7x11" pan, so it needed to cook about 5-10 mins. longer. My family loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
