I recently made this after having a bag full of Mac's and looking for something different to make. The cake is on the lighter side, and the sweet crumble top is the perfect compliment. A++

Apple-Scotch Snack Cake

Baked this yesterday. My husband and granddaughter both enjoyed it. I didn't read the directions completely and mixed the 1 cup morsels into the batter. It worked fine and distributed the butterscotch flavor throughout the cake.
