OLD FASHION RHUBARB CAKE

This is one of my old Midwestern "upbringing" recipes.

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup sour milk*
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
1/2 cups chopped pecans
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Cream brown sugar, butter, and egg; add milk and vanilla.  Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, rhubarb, and nuts.  Place batter in a well-greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan and sprinkle with a mixture of the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Serve plain or topped with whipped cream or ice cream.
