This recipe comes from the blog, "The girl who ate everything". It is very sweet. It is very cakey. Maybe better for dessert than breakfast. Lesson learned.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Start with 3 cups flour.
1 tsp vanilla
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Now for the topping:
Show me a baker who says they don't eat brown sugar straight, and I'll show you a filthy liar.
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs flour
1 Tbs Cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans if you're feelin it today,
I was not.
I did, however throw in 1 or 2 or 8 extra shakes of cinnamon.
Again, you'll want to scrape down the sides....
Then take a knife and make swirly twirly pretty patterns all over the cake.
This is what your cake should look like. Unless it doesn't. I'm sure yours looks fine.
Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350. That's what my recipe said. It lied to me. It ended up baking around 40 minutes. I haven't met your oven. Just bake it for 30 minutes and then stick a toothpick into it to test doneness. If its not done, check again every 5 minutes till the toothpick comes out clean.
Now go wash your dishes. You slob.
Heres a little sideways view of the Glaze. Sorry, forgot to turn it. Bummer. You will need: 2 cups Powdered Sugar, 5 Tbs Milk and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix well.
