    This cake is moist and delicious while the topping is slightly crunchy and sweeter. Together, they make a delightful combination.

    Serves: 9 

    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 6 tablespoons white sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 70g shortening, butter or margarine
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

    1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C. Grease and flour a 23cm square pan.
    2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender to the size of small peas.
    3. In a separate small bowl, beat the egg well then stir in the milk and vanilla. Add the egg-milk mixture to the flour mixture all at once. Stir carefully until just blended.
    4. Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Drizzle top with melted butter.
    5. In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of cake. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
