This is so easy and so fast to throw together. It's tasty, which is also good because it doesn't really keep as leftovers. It's best eaten warm, right from the oven, with a large scoop of ice cream or whipped topping.
I found the recipe in an old 1966 cookbook - Mary Meade's Modern Homemaker Cookbook. Great recipes in that thing.
