Introduction

I adapted this moist, low(ish) fat cake from The Newlywed Cookbook by Robin Miller, baking the topping (which I added pecans and almonds to) onto the top of the cake rather than sprinkling it on after baking. It's a wonderful morning snack!

    2 tbsp coarse raw sugar
    2 tbsp slivered almonds
    2 tbsp chopped pecans

    2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
    3 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla
