Mom's Breakfast Cake

Sunday, June 28, 2009

This is one of those old classic recipes from my Mom.  She didn't cook fancy breakfasts very often, but when we woke up to the sweet cinnamon aroma wafting through the house we knew to come running to the table quickly.  Since there were eight of us kids she would always double the recipe, but even still if we didn't take our fair share first thing there definitely were not going to be seconds.   Now my kids love it as much as we did!

The ingredients:
1-1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup milk
1 egg

TOPPING:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup flour
3 Tbs. firm butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Sift dry ingredients together.  Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the oil, milk, and egg.  Stir just until combined.  Pour into a greased 8x8-inch pan.  In a small bowl, cut the topping ingredients together with a pastry blender or fork.  Sprinkle evenly over the batter, pushing the topping down slightly with your fingers into the batter.  Bake for about 20 minutes or until tests done.  Serve warm.

Enjoy!

We made this again today and I can't tell you how much I love it. I would like to mention though that it nomally takes 30-35 minutes for it to cook. BTW, would you mind posting the printable recipe? (o:
