Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9 x 13 pan.

Cinnamon Streusel layer/topping:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter

Mix the cinnamon, sugar and flour.  Cut in the butter until fine.  Set aside.

Batter:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup shortening

Mix the dry ingredients then cut in the shortening.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla

Beat the eggs.  Mix the milk, sour cream and vanilla and add to the eggs.  Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture in parts until just mixed.  Layer half of the batter in the prepared pan, followed by half of the topping then repeat.  Bake in oven 50 to 60 minutes, testing for doneness.
