I followed the directions and used the exact ingredients, but for some reason when I inverted the coffeecake to remove it, all of the topping stayed stuck to the bottom of the pan? I had to scrape it out and much seemed crystalized. It still tasted good, bit looked like a mess. Should it be a "greased" pan or maybe specific type of pan? Thanks, -WM
