  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup oil (I use coconut oil)
  • ⅔ cup milkTopping
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • chopped nuts (optional)
Preparation Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Spray a 9” cake pan with cooking spray or coat with butter.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and powder and salt. Add egg, oil and milk and mix into the dry ingredients. Pour into cake pan.
  4. To make the topping mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon and flour. Cut in the butter with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the cake batter, then sprinkle chopped nuts over the top of that. I also sometimes like to add a little extra brown sugar over the top.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
