Coffee Cake

Crumbling with cinnamon laced buttery sweetness, this Coffee Cake recipe is cheaper and better than any you may stumble across. Thick slices covered in accents and invitations this cake is a must try. My middle son requested this cake with his morning tea the day of his birthday in a couple of weeks (getting dignified I guess). When this came out of the oven it was met by my waiting family. We all gathered in the kitchen area and enjoyed a slice together. Absolutely recommend this with a cup of coffee for us grown ups. But kids may also enjoy with a mild tea, milk or favorite beverage.

Every time I start a long road trip, my husband will grab a cup of coffee and a cinnamon coffee cake from one of the shops near the interstate. He was so excited when he saw this come out of the oven. Since then this has grown into a family favorite. Watch the video and follow the instructions below to have this dish today.

In a large bowl: combine the eggs and butter then beat. Then add brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla extract, milk while continuing to beat until smooth. Add the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt then mix. Highly recommend that you sift the dry ingredients before mixing them into the wet ingredients. This will form a smoother batter and the cake will be very soft & fluffy. 

n a separate bowl: combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and COLD butter. Use a pastry cutter or your hand to mix until it begins to form coarse crumbs. 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the 9″ x 9″ pan with baking cooking spray or butter. Recommend putting some parchment paper on the bottom of the pan first. Add ½ of the batter to the pan. Add all of the cinnamon layer on top (use a spoon to spread/level). Place the other ½ of the batter on top. Coat the top batter layer with the streusel mixture (use a spoon to spread/level). 

Add all of the cinnamon layer on top (use a spoon to spread/level).

Place the other ½ of the batter on top.

Coat the top batter layer with the streusel mixture (use a spoon to spread/level). 

Bake for 45-50 minutes (it took me 45 min) or until a toothpick placed in the center comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and rest the cake in the pan for 15 minutes. Then transfer the cake to a baking rack.

Cool for 15 minutes or to room temperature prior to serving.

Enjoy!
