I've had this recipe for 30 yrs. My friend Creagh always made this for our Christmas breakfast buffet. It uses 1 1/2 cups of butter, but is simply delicious and easy to make. It is so good with coffee or tea, but makes a good, easy dessert too. It is placed in a COLD OVEN to start.
cream well the 1 cup butter and 1 cup sugar. Add eggs, and beat well. Add milk and sifted dry ingredients alternately.
For Topping, mix together the 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup chopped nuts, 2 tbsp. flour, and 1 tbsp. cinnamon.
Put 1/2 the dough into greased 9/13 inch pan. Sprinkle half of the topping over the dough. Pour half of the melted butter over the filling (1/4 cup). Repeat steps with remaining half of dough,(may need to use a spatula to smooth out dough, as it is a bit sticky) continue with remaining topping, and remaining 1/4 cup melted butter. Don't stir or swirl topping into batter.
Place pan in a COLD oven. Set oven at 350 degrees. Bake 35-40 minutes.
