  7. Stand in pan for 5 minutes before turning out.


  8. Melt butter and work into the rest of the ingredients.
  9. Put into a large microwave ring pan and cook for about 6-1/2 minutes in a 900 Watt microwave oven.
  10. Leave in pan as above.

  11. Turn out and ice when cold.
  12. I use a plain butter icing, or you can sprinkle it with sugar.
  13. It is delicious.
