Sift together the flour and the baking powder into a bowl. Mix the baking soda into the milk. Set it aside. Mix brown sugar, flour mixture and cubed butter. Then mix the butter with fork or a pastry blender into the dry ingredients. Put 1/3rd of this crumbly mixture into a greased 6” cake pan. Press down to form a crust. Beat egg in a bowl and add the nutmeg and milk–baking soda mixture and set aside. Once it’s mixed well and frothy (about 3 minutes using a standing mixer), pour in the rest of the crumbly mixture. Mix that well, pour the batter over prepared crust. Gently place walnuts over the batter. Bake at 180 degrees C for 40 minutes or until done.
