Today's recipe is one that's brand new to me, but it's so easy and so tasty that I know I'll be adding it to my regular recipe repertoire (!). I found it at the Pantry Party recipe swap hosted (hostessed?) by Jane from The Thrifty Countrywoman.
This recipe is one of Jane's own contributions; it definitely fits the pantry party criteria of using common pantry/stockpile ingredients, and my criteria of being quick, easy, and delicious.
- 2 c brown sugar
- 2 1/2 c flour
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 c butter or margarine
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1/2 c chopped nuts 1
- 1 c milk
- 1 T baking powder
Mix together brown sugar, flour, and salt. Cut in butter or margarine until the mixture is like coarse meal or bread crumbs.
Measure one cup of the crumb mixture and set aside.
To the remaining mixture, add baking powder and milk. Spread into a greased or cooking sprayed 13 x 9 inch pan. (The batter while be similar in consistency to brownie batter.)
Add cinnamon and chopped nuts to the 1 cup of reserved crumbs, and sprinkle over the top of the batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
The only thing I might do differently is add just a smidge more nuts--I admit I'm a bit of pecan nut--I love the taste of the pecans on top after they've been toasted, ummmm.
This cake is light in texture, and has a unique, not overly sweet taste--perfect with a cup of coffee or hot tea--or a cold glass of milk. It's definitely a keeper.
