For the cake: 1 c milk, whole 2 c. flour 3/4 c. sugar, white 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 c. butter 1 egg 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla bean paste
For strudel: 1/2 c. flour 2/3 c. sugar, brown 1/2 c. butter 1-2 tsp. cinnamon, to taste
Sift dry ingredients, mix in egg, milk, butter, and vanilla. Pour into parchment-lined 9" cake pans. Cream sugar and flour into butter, fold in cinnamon, and sprinkle strudel atop cake. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before serving. Seriously. It will be soft and moist at the cake base and delicately-crisp on top. Serve with coffee!
