Spanish Coffee Cake

Here is a quick recipe for Spanish Coffee Cake, I've been baking it since I was in grade school. It's the perfect breakfast for cool fall mornings, and it is simple to make. This recipe is from my great aunt. You will need the below ingredients and an 8 x12 pan, plus the usual measuring cups, spoons and cooking utensils.

-2 and a half cups sifted flour
-1 cup brown sugar
-3/4 cup white sugar
-1 tsp. cinnamon
-1 tsp. salt
-1 tsp. nutmeg
-3/4 cup vegetable oil
Mix all these ingredients throughly, then remove 3/4 of a cup for the topping, set aside.
With the remaining ingredients add:
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1 tsp. baking powder
-1 egg
-1 cup sour milk ( mix1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice with milk to sour it.) ((I don't recommend using the milk that has been sitting in the back of your fridge for a month! ))
Mix all ingredients together, beat for several minutes. Pour into pan, sprinkle topping that has been set aside on top and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
