The recipe is as follows:
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 1/3 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. shortening
3/4 c. milk
1 tbls. pumpkin pie spice (my adaptation)
Blend all these ingredients together and pour into a greased baking pan. The recipe didn’t specify what size pan to use so I used one approximately 9×7 in size.
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. flour
3 tbls. margarine
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (my adaptation)
Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top of the cake mixture and bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
The cake was delicious. The pumpkin pie spice really paired well with the brown sugar, and of course a cup of coffee. I was extremely happy with the texture and flavor, and it put smiles on the faces of those I shared my treat with!
