This another recipe from the wonderful Country Oaks B&B. We had this during our second visit there and it is SOOO good! The other great thing about this recipe is that you can prepare it the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning. This is great when you have company or those days when you want to sleep in a little and not have to spend a long time in the kitchen cooking that morning. Did I mention how tasty it is??!

For topping ~ combine remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar, nuts and 1 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle over batter.
