Today we watched General Conference for our church. I make "conference cake" for us to eat while we watch on tv. This is a good recipe from my husband's family. It's a little tricky, so read the directions carefully.
Mix the following together until crumbly:
2 1/2 Cups flour
1 Cup Brown sugar
1 Cup White sugar
1 tsp. nutmeg
2/3 C vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
Remove 2/3 Cup of the above mixture and set aside for topping.
To the first mixture, add:
1 1/2 tsp baking powder and mix well
In a separate bowl, mix:
1 egg beaten
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 Cup water
1/2 Cup milk
Now make an indentation in the flour mixture. Add the egg/milk mixture and mix well.
Put in a greased/floured 9X13 pan.
To reserved 2/3 cup of topping mixture add:
1 tsp cinnamon
chopped walnuts (about a cup...or according to your likes)
Sprinkle the topping mixture on top of the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until done.
