Crumb Cake

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sour milk (or + 1 Tbsp lemon or vinegar , read down for a trick on this)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon 
1 egg

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine 2 cups flour, 2 cups brown sugar, and 3/4 cup shortening and rub to crumbs. Set aside 1 cup of mixture.
Add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice, or vinegar to your 1 cup of milk, it will curdle within a few minutes, giving you "sour milk".
To rest of mixture add 1 cup sour milk, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp cloves, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 egg. Mix well.
Pour into 9x13 pan that has been lightly greased, top with reserved crumbs and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

You can serve plain or add chilled peaches to the top when serving. Yum!
