Cupid's Cake Magic

The question is: Is it a dessert or is it breakfast? Who cares! It is delicious enough for both. And no this isn't a Valentine's recipe. It just has a cute little name with a nice ring...Cupid's Cake Magic. But then again, you sure could serve it to that someone special on the official day of love.

I made this little magic cake for breakfast for our Sunday School class. And it received great reviews. It could be served with tea, coffee or for dessert with a nice cold class of milk. The crunchy topping really tops the cake. The pun is intended:)

Cupid's Cake Magic

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup soft butter
1 egg
1 cup milk

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a square 9-inch cake pan. Combine dry ingredients. Add butter or margarine, egg, and milk. Beat hard for two minutes. Pour into pan. Cover with Crunchy Topping (recipe follows) and bake for 40 minutes.
YIELD: 9 to 12 servings

Crunchy Topping

2 teaspoons soft butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

Mix all ingredients together with a fork.

How much easier could this recipe be? Just mix and bake until golden! You could have this cake whipped up so easily for this upcoming Easter morning. No one will even care about their Easter candy with this around! Okay, well so maybe I will eat both this AND my Cadbury Eggs....
