I have no idea of the origin of this recipe - it's lost in the sands of time. I've been making it for over forty years, especially when my children were small. It's a quick breakfast addition, or great with a big glass of milk for an afternoon snack. This curiously named treat isn't really a bread, a cake or a cookie, but something in between, and so easy and quick to prepare.
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 350░. Prepare a square baking pan by lining it with waxed paper, then lightly buttering the waxed paper.
Mix topping ingredients together and set aside.
Cream together the butter or margarine and the sugar. Combine the dry ingredients together in one bowl, and the milk and beaten egg in another bowl.
Add the dry ingredients and the wet alternately to the creamed sugar mixture. Spread in pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Sprinkle topping and continue baking 10 minutes more. Cut while still hot.
