Preheat oven to 400°F.
Spray an 8-inch square or round nonstick baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
Into mixing bowl sift together 2 cups flour and the granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; with pastry blender, or 2 knives used scissors-fashion, cut in 1/4 cup margarine until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and lemon peel and, using electric mixer, beat just until smooth; pour batter into sprayed pan.
In small bowl combine remaining 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon margarine and the brown sugar; add remaining 1/4 cup flour, the nuts, and cinnamon and mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined and crumbly.
Sprinkle nut-crumb mixture evenly over batter and bake for 25 to 30 minutes (until cake pulls away slightly from sides of pan].
Transfer pan to wire rack and let cake cool in pan.
To serve, cut into 8 equal pieces.
