Streusel Cake

This was a favorite, growing up. I just made (and ate!) this, and it is a great fluffy cake with yummy crystallized brown sugar topping! It's great for dessert, and then for breakfast the next morning!

Streusel:
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
9 tablespoons firm butter

Mix until crumbly.

Cake:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup milk
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare streusel. Beat remaining ingredients in a large bowl on low speed for 30 seconds, then on medium speed for 2 minutes. Spread half of the batter in a greased 13 x 9 or 9 x 9 pan. Sprinkle 1/2 of the streusel. Top with remaining batter. Sprinkle with remaining streusel. Bake until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.

Yield: 9-12 servings.
