  • pour into greased baking dish
  • to make the topping, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, butter and vanilla until well blended
  • pour egg mixture and using a rubber spatula gently fold until flour is moistened and the mixture forms a soft dough
