Streusel-Filled Coffee Cake

I think this is the first recipe on here that is perfect for two people as it is below. BUT, this is one of those recipes that you want more then just a serving of.

This is "General Conference Coffee Cake". Growing up as a kid we got this cake twice a year (unless mom wanted it on her birthday.) We would get it in April and October when our Church holds their General Conference and it was for breakfast Sunday morning. We would snack on it the rest of the day and even every once in a while have enough for Monday morning for breakfast. But that was always very VERY rare! Even though I'm now out of the family house, it's one tradition that I don't want to give up. For the last two years I've baked it while my husband is at the Priesthood Session of General Conference and it's rather relaxing for me. (Especially when Run Away Bride is playing in the background). If you have more then 2 people, DOUBLE the recipe!!!

Streusel Mixture:

1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts (if desired) (we don't use nuts)

Combine All Ingredients

Cake Mixture:

1 1/2 cups flour

3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. Cut in shortening with pastry blender until mixture is like fine cornmeal (I just use a fork).

Blend in well-beaten egg mixed with milk. Then blend in vanilla and beat just enough to mix well.

Pour half the batter into a greased and floured 8" square pan. Sprinkle with half the streusel mixture. Add remaining batter and sprinkle remaining streusel mixture on top. Bake at 375* for 25-30 minutes. (Remember I DOUBLED the recipe.)
