  3. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Pour into a 9 x 13" greased pan.
  5. Topping:
  6. Stir together topping ingredients until creamy
  7. Drop evenly over batter by tablespoons and swirl through the batter with a knife.

  10. This was really good! I served this at a ladies brunch and everyone loved it. Best warm but we heated leftovers in the microwave which worked really well.
