Instructions
  1. CAKE: Mix all ingredients briefly. Pour into 8x10 inch oiled and buttered baking pan. Bake at 175 C (350 F) for about 40 minutes or until skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean and the top of the cake is golden brown.

  2. Let cake cool to room temperature. Cut the cake in half. Crumble upper half into a bowl.
