~ This is so easy, inexpensive and tasty!
~ Mix it up and pop it in the oven just before serving dinner. Dessert will be ready when you are!
~ For Chocolate lovers - I kicked it up a notch and sprinkled 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips over the batter before I sprinkled on the cocoa/br. sugar mixture. ~I'd like to test it with some instant coffee crystals mixed into the hot water or a bit of brewed coffee used in place of some of the water - What do you think?
