½ cup sugar

⅓ cup flour

½ tsp. cinnamon

4 tbsp. chilled, cubed butter

Cake ingredients:

4 tbsp. butter, softened

¾ cup sugar

1 egg

2 cups flour

2 tsp. powder

First, make the topping – place all of the ingredients into the bowl of a mixer and, using the whisk attachment, blend them until the butter is broken up into small bits and the mixture resembles large crumbs.

For the cake, begin by creaming the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Add the egg.
