Thanks for stopping by for some coffee cake today. I'm working my way through my Grandma Millicent's vintage recipes in this series called "Millicent and Malia." And I seem to be drawn to the sweet stuff quite a bit. As for today's treat, Grandma Millicent was a practical gal. I can feel her personality in this recipe– all simple ingredients you probably have on hand.
1 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 1/4 cup Flour
2/3 t Salt
2/3 t Cinnamon
1/2 cup Shortening

Mix flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt
Add shortening and work in like pie. Set aside 1/3 of the mixture for the top

Sprinkle remaining mixture on top. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
Grab a fork!
