Very good, but definitely requires more flour than called for. I used 2 1/2 cups, and ended up with a regular dough; to make it dry enough to crumble, I needed between 3 and 3 1/4 cups. (Also, as a note, I used a 9x11 pan, and it worked pretty well.)

Easy and delicious. I add 1 tsp vanilla to the batter and sprinkle course raw sugar over the top. Excellent recipe.
