how to: make breakfast cake

i've been told many good things about this treat. if you're looking for something nutritious this won't be your cup of tea. and that's what makes it so good.

Batter Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/3 cups milk
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening. You should have just little pieces of shortening afterward.
Mix milk and eggs together. Add to flour mixture and stir.
Pour into greased 9x13 pan.

Topping Ingredients:
3/4 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup soft butter

Mix flour, sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter.
Sprinkle over cake.
You can cover and refrigerate to cook later.
Bake for 20 minutes or until an inserted fork comes out clean.
Enjoy! It is delicious I promise.
