Recipe by AngelaTN

Someone brought this to a church dinner, and I have never seen so many people scramble for a recipe. It's superb! I am afraid I will lose my only copy, so I am posting it here for safekeeping.

I made this exactly as written. While thetaste was good,I think it needs a little work. First, you could cut the butter in half at least.Second, you can not spread the in mix on top of the batter.
