  2. Using a fork, blend topping ingredients in small bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream the butter, brown sugar and egg (I do it by hand with a fork, but a mixer works wonders!)

  5. Pour cake batter into prepared baking dish.
  6. Sprinkle berries over top and gently push into batter and then sprinkle sugar topping over all.
