1 tablespoon melted butter

8x8 pan- no need for grease
mix cake, melt butter and add cinnamon and brown sugar pour over cake. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. Shawn says to really make this good increase the topping. You can also add 1 can drained peaches or any other fruit you have on board.


This is a wonderful breakfast for company.

12 eggs

season to taste
add what ever you have on hand... any type of meat cut up, onions, mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes, you name it it will work. Scramble the eggs and add the other ingredients. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. I serve this with salsa & sour cream.
