I, too, grew up with this recipe, and like many of the others, I double the topping. As for the cake portion, I add a little extra sugar AND I add 1/4 c. oil. Additionally, I usually bake it in a small rectangular "glass" dish (probably about 5 x 9; not the size of a 9x13 though, unless you double the cake recipe)AND I bake it at 350 for 18 min.--all of these things combined help to make the cake not so dry or "thick" to eat. LOVE IT!
