Total time: 
  • Cake:
  • ~~~~~~
  • 1½ sticks Butter, softened
  • 1¾ cup Sugar
  • 3 cups Flour, sifted
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1¼ cup Whole Milk
  • 3 whole Egg Whites, beaten until stiff
  • Topping:
  • ~~~~~~~
  • 1½ sticks Butter, softened
  • ¾ cup Flour
  • 1½ cups Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Oats
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt.
  3. Beat egg whites and put aside.
  4. Cream sugar and butter.
  5. Add flour mixture and milk alternately just until combined. Do not over beat!
  6. Fold in egg whites with a rubber spatula.
  7. Grease a 9X13 baking pan. Or line it with foil or parchment paper and grease it well.
  8. Use a pan with high sides.
  9. In another bowl, combine topping ingredients with a pastry cutter until crumbly.
  10. Sprinkle over top.
  11. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until no longer jiggly in the center.
Make sure not to over beat, just combine. You do not want a rough and tough cake! Folding in the stiff egg whites was a little more of an issue than I thought as my batter was very thick.
