Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you plan to tote this cake to a picnic, bake it in a disposable foil pan. Then you don't have to carry home the dirty pan.
  • tip 2
    For an oatmeal-chocolate chip topping, cool cake 10 minutes; sprinkle with 1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips.
