The recipe was simple, cost effective, appealing to look at, and delicious. This was my dinner last night with a big glass of milk and coffee to follow. Nothing else! I do this sometimes, not eat right. Just because I want to. Sometimes - just once in a while - we have to buck the system to feel the freedom. Not often, mind you, just once in a while. I don't do things other women do for a treat, such as pedicures and makeup. This is what I do for a treat for myself. Right out of the oven with a touch of butter.
In a bowl, beat 1 EGG. Add 1/4 cup OIL and 1/2 cup MILK. Set aside.
In a second bowl combine 1 1/2 cups FLOUR, 3/4 cup SUGAR, 2 teaspoons BAKING POWDER, 1/2 teaspoon SALT.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir with a fork until combined. Pour batter into a greased pan.
Combine 1 tablespoon MELTED BUTTER, 1 tablespoon FLOUR, 1/4 cup BROWN SUGAR, 1 teaspoon CINNAMON until well blended. It will look crumby. Sprinkle on top of batter.
Cook in a 375 oven, 25-30 minutes.
I didn't have brown sugar I could use (hard as a rock) so I made some using 1 cup of sugar to 1 tablespoon molasses. It worked out great!
