Prepare streusel topping by cutting the butter into the flour and stirring in the brown sugar and pecan pieces. Set aside.

Cream together the butter and white sugar.

Beat in the egg, followed by the milk.

Sift the flour, baking powder salt and nutmeg together and gradually mix into the liquid ingredients.

Top with the streusel mixture.

Bake for at least 60 minutes until a wooden pick shows sponge layer to be firm and baked.
