cups all-purpose flour

1/2
cup granulated sugar

2 1/2
teaspoons baking powder

cup milk

2

  1. Place rack in center of oven, and preheat oven to 325°.
  2. Lightly brush a 9-by-12 1/2-inch baking pan with canola oil, dust with flour, and tap to remove excess.

  5. In a second bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, canola oil, and vanilla.
  6. Using a rubber spatula, fold dry ingredients into egg mixture.
  7. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan, and set aside.
  8. In a medium bowl, combine remaining 2 1/2 cups flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  9. Pour melted butter over flour mixture, and toss with a rubber spatula until large crumbs form.
  10. Sprinkle crumbs over batter, and bake, rotating pan after 10 minutes.
  11. Continue baking until a cake tester comes out clean, about 10 minutes more.
  12. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool.
  13. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.
  14. Using a serrated knife or bench scraper, cut into 3-inch squares, and serve.
  15. This cake can be stored, refrigerated, in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

I think this one is Karen Barker of Magnolia Grill in Durham (is that the right name?). It is supposedly THE definitive recipe.
