What a great, easy dessert to make! I would absolutely love it if you cooked it in a 9x13 pan, though--that would be even better, I'm sure. I made mine in a big cake pan, and it came out great. The crumb on top is great, too, and doesn't lose its shape even after it's been sitting around for an hour. Very nice. The recipe looks like it would be really easy to modify to your own tastes, and I ended up adding some dried cranberries to the top, because I really do prefer a thicker cake than the usual half-cake, and this is getting old before my eyes. Anyway, good cake, thanks!
