Step 2

Generously grease the glass dish with some butter, then add the batter. Spread evenly and nicely, and tap to remove any air bubbles. Place it in the preheated 350 degrees F oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. After baking, drizzle the melted butter on top and spread it nicely. Serve with a drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
