Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare 9 in. round baking pan with vegetable pan spray.

Step 2

Combine 3/4 cup oats, 1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup light brown sugar, 1/4 cup pecans, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in 5 tbsp. butter until well-blended.

Step 3

For cake: in small bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, 3/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. baking soda. In large bowl, beat 6 oz. cream cheese, 3 tbsp. butter and 1/2 cup sugar with electric mixer until creamy. Add 1 egg, 1 egg yolk, 5 tbsp milk and 2 tsp. vanilla; beat until smooth. Add flour mixture to cream cheese mixture; beat at low speed just until combined (batter will be thick). Spread mixture in prepared pan and sprinkle with topping.

Step 4

Bake 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if using. Serve warm.
