How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  3. Grease a 9x13 pan with butter and pour batter into pan.

  4. In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour and melted butter. Use your fingers to sprinkle over the top of the cake. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
