what you'll need:
~ 1/2 pkg. white cake mix (9+ oz. dry mix)
~ 1/2 c. water
~ 2 egg whites
~ 2 Tb. oil
~ 2 Tb. sour cream
Mix well and pour into a 8 x 8 pan (or 8" round) that has been sprayed with non stick stuff.
For the crumb...refer to the picture above.....hahahhahaa, nah I wouldn't do that to ya.
~ 1 c. flour
~2 Tb. cornstarch
~1/2 c. sugar
~1 Tb. brown sugar
Whisk to combine and with a fork, stir in butter
~1/2 c. melted butter, cooled
it will make this crumbly cookie dough type stuff
top the batter with all the topping
bake @ 350*F for 40 mins.
p.s...its even better if its allowed to cool to room temp and covered then let to sit over night.
but, I totally understand if it doesn't make it that long.
I won't judge you.
