Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Ingredients

2/3 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
shortning
1
egg
1 c
milk
2 c
unbleached white flour
2 tsp
baking powder

TOPPING

1/2 c
packed brown sugar, dark or light to taste
1 tsp
cinnamon

MELT SOME BUTTER TO POUR OVER THE TOP

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put the shortning and the flour in a bowl big enough for the entire recipe. Use a pastry blender or two knives to cut in the shortning until it is well blended.
2
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until batter looks similar to pancake batter, small lumps are ok.
3
Transfer to a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray, you can use either an 8" x 8" or an 8" round pan.
4
Put on topping and spread evenly. Sometimes I make an extra half a batch of topping to make it richer. I poke my fingers don in the batter to get the topping into the cake for an even more decadent taste.
5
Pour the melted butter over the top, this is to taste but I would use 4 to 8 tablespoons. Make sure to get some in the wells made by your fingers.
6
Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes. Cake is done when a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
