  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour a medium glass baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, beat together margarine and 3 cups sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well. Combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, rice flour, and baking powder; add them alternately with the milk, stirring well between each addition. Slowly stir in Parmesan cheese. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, and sesame seeds. Sprinkle evenly over the batter in the cake pan.
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely, and cut into squares.

I made mine in an 11x16 pan, and it still needed at least 45 minutes. It was very sweet and light, and a great treat for a service team headed to Honduras!

I don't get it. I was looking forward too making this recipe for a long time as the pictures where beautiful and the ratings where all so positive. I followed the recipe exactly, but halved the ...
