Chocolate-Sprinkled Brown Sugar Cake submitted by Mom Johnson
This was a traditional Christmas morning coffee-cake in our house! The baked-in topping is great!

In a mixing bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Thoroughly mix in the brown sugar. Cut in the 3/4 cup butter until mixture forms fine crumbs. Remove and reserve 1 cup flour-butter mixture for topping.

To remaining flour-butter mixture, add milk, vanilla and egg. Beat until the batter is smooth. Spread batter in a buttered, lightly floured 13x9 inch baking pan.

Cut the 3 T. butter into reserved flour-butter mixture and stir in nuts and chocolate sprinkles. Sprinkle evenly over top of batter.
