DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9 inch square pan, and line with baking paper if desired.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt, then rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • You can do this with the tips of your fingers or in your food processor.
  • Then add sugar, and combine.
  • Press half this mixture evenly over the base of the prepared cake pan, and reserve other half.
  • Dissolve baking soda in milk (or sour cream), add beaten egg and nutmeg, then add to reserved mixture.
  • Combine well.
  • Pour into pan and sprinkle nuts, and some cinnamon if desired, over top.
  • Bake in oven for 45 minutes to 60 minutes (start testing for doneness with a skewer after about 45 minutes).
  • Allow to stand for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
