This recipe came out of Grandma's Biquick cookbook from the 1950's. It's the same cookbook that has the hamburger onion pie.
Velvet Crumb Cake aka Wheaties Cake
1 1/3 cups Bisquick ( I made my own)
3/4 cup sugar
3 tbls soft shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Mix Bisquick and sugar. Add shortening, egg, 1/4 milk. Add remaining ingredients. Beat about 1 1/3 minutes. Pour into 8-9 inch greased square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Cover with broiled topping while warm.
3 tbls butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbls cream/milk
1/2 cup Wheaties or coconut
Mix together butter, brown sugar, milk and Wheaties. Spread on baked cake. Place about 3 inches under broiler (low heat) until mixture bubbles and browns (3-5 minutes). Watch carefully because it will burn fast.
