CINNAMON STREUSEL CAKE
- 1 cup oil
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 cups cake flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cup treacle or brown sugar*
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ⅓ – ½ cup butter, melted
In a large mixing bowl. combine oil, eggs, vanilla and milk together.
In a medium bowl, blend together sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
Combine egg mixture with flour mixture. Pour half the batter into a lightly greased 23 x 33 x 6 cm deep pan.
In a medium bowl, prepare streusel by combining brown sugar and cinnamon.
Sprinkle half of streusel on top of the batter. Top with remaining batter and then sprinkle the remaining streusel on top.
Drizzle with melted butter (you can do less and use ⅓ cup butter or up to ½ cup butter melted).
Bake, covered with foil at 180ºC for 40 minutes. Take the foil off and bake an additional 10 minutes.
*The original recipe requires brown sugar, but I used treacle sugar hence the darker shade.
