- 1 tsp vanilla extract shopping list
- 1 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour shopping list

- Streusel: shopping list

- 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour shopping list
- 2 Tbsp softened butter shopping list

How to make it
- Grease a 9" cake pan and dust lightly with dried breadcrumbs
- Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg. Alternately add the dry, sifted ingredients and the milk with the vanilla mixed into it.
- Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1/2 the streusel and a bit of the coconut. Top with the remaining batter and then the streusel.
- Bake until tests done. I find it varies greatly by the oven it's baked in, ranging from 25 minutes to 45, so just test it to be sure. That is the only "fussiness" of this recipe, it is easy and reliable.
