With only two ratings one 1 star and the other 5 I decided I would take a chance. I thought it was very good I halved the recipie and baked it in a 9" sqaure pan,I had to add about 1/4 cup more flour the batter was a little runny, cutting circles w/a knife worked nicely. Next time I will not halve the topping and i will mix it together first. I also cooked it for 5-7 min. longer it had a nice crispy/chewey edge and a soft fluffy middle.

My family loves this cake and it is the most requested one. Easy to make which is important to me as I am a very new cook. I put in a 9x13 inch cake pan rather than the 2 8-inch suggested and have had it turn out perfect everytime.

My daughter chose this cake, and even though it hadn't received any reviews we thought we'd try it. Don't! We never got a chance to even taste it. The cake bubbled over in the oven, started a fire and was completely destroyed!

Very different texture from the fluffy cakes most people are used to. Kind of a heavy coffee cake. It has a pleasant taste, though, and is very easy to make. It's also economical, using ingredients many people usually have on hand.
