Crumb Cake

This is a great recipe for a brunch or even as dessert after a light lunch. Easy and delicious!

What you need:
3 cups of flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg
1 cup of milk

What to do:
Mix together the flour through cinnamon. Reserve one cup for topping. Add egg and milk. Pour into an 8 x 8* pan and add topping. Double for a 9 x 13. Bake in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.

*I've made this recipe twice, and I think a larger pan size is necessary. The first time I made, I pulled the cake out at the specified time and and it wasn't baked through in the middle at all. The second time I was aware to watch for this and took careful measures to make the sure the middle baked through. It took probably 15-20 minutes longer, aluminum foil around the edges, and the cake ended up being drier than I would like. I would suggest using a 9x9 or 11x7 pan instead.
