My friend Shawn shared this recipe with me over a year ago and I just go around to making it.
Why did I wait so long?
It is delish!

 Ingredients for cake
 You first cut in the butter with the flour and sugar.  Next come the wet ingredients.  Be sure not to over mix.
 Reserve one cup of flour, sugar, and butter mixture.
 You add some more goodies to the reserved mixture to make a crunchy topping.
 Sprinkle reserved mixture over cake before baking
 It was smelling awesome while baking


{ 2 c. sugar
{ 1 cup butter
{ 3 c. flour

Mix with pastry cutter until crumbly.

Take out 1 cup of this mixture, set aside.

In remaining mixture add:

2 eggs

3 tsp baking powder

1 can evaporated milk

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp almond extract

Mix with spoon thoroughly, but don't over mix.

Pour into greased 9" x 13" pan.

Add and mix 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp almond extract to the reserved 1 cup of mixture. NOTE: I added 1/2 cup chopped almonds to this mixture, which is optional.  Sprinkle evenly on top of batter in pan.

Bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes, check it at 45 minutes and every five minutes after to check for doneness.

Icing: Heat 2 Tbsp butter, 1/4 tsp almond extract, about 1/4 cup milk. Add powdered sugar to make medium to thin icing.

Drizzle over warm (not hot) cake.

Looks delicious! I'm going to have to come back to this post when I'm on my own computer. I'm using an I-pod to blog hop this evening while watching the news and visiting with family. One is napping and the other two are talking.
