Coffee Cake

A favorite from childhood; the page in Betty Crocker's Cookbook is absurdly stained.

1 1/2 c AP flour
3/4 c sugar
2 1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t salt
1/4 c shortening
3/4 c milk
1 egg

Heat oven to 375. Grease 8x8 can. Cut fat into mixed dries; stir in mixed wets. Beat 30 seconds. Spread in pan, sprinkle topping over batter. Bake 25-30 minutes until it tests clean. Serve warm.

Topping (cut together until crumbly):
1/3 c brown sugar
1/4 c AP flour
1/2 t cinnamon
3 T firm butter
