Homemade Coffee Cake

I follow this great blog called StickTo Your Hips Linda has so many fabulous recipes! After looking at all her recipes, I chose this one to try first. WOW! This was so good and extremely easy to make. I loved how the cinnamon topping dropped down into the cake and made little craters of cinnamon goodness! This cake got two thumbs up from us.

Coffee Cake
(Printable Recipe)

Vegetable cooking spray
¼ cup butter, softened
¼ cup flour
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 ½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg
¾ cup sugar
⅓ cup butter, melted
½ cup milk
1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat an 8×8 inch baking pan or a 9-inch springform pan with the cooking spray and set aside.

In a small bowl, with a fork, mash together the softened butter, ¼ cup flour, brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon. (It will be more creamy instead of dry like a traditional streusel. But this will cause the clumps to fall into the cake instead of sit on top. Yay!)

In a small bowl combine the 1 ½ cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl beat the egg and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture all at once and stir together just until incorporated. Don’t overmix.

Pour into prepared pan and dot the surface with the brown sugar mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until moist crumbs clings to a toothpick inserted in the middle. Best served toasty warm.

Pin It!
