Recipe: Cinnamon Coffee Cake

August 6, 2009 by Scott Gile

A recent addition to our menus at Brewster House has been our Cinnamon Coffee Cake. It came from another family member, and has proved to be very popular with our guests.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake

1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 1/2 cup Flour
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 cup oil (veg./canola, corn, whatever)

Mix all the above together thoroughly, then remove 3/4 cup of mixture for
topping.

To remainder, add:
1 egg
1 cup sour milk (add 1 Tablespoon vinegar to 1 cup milk and let sit for a couple minutes) OR you can use 1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

  1. Mix just until ingredients are incorporated, then put in 9×13 inch pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray
  2. Top with 3/4 cup mixture and add some chopped nuts, if desired
  3. Bake 35-45 min. (mine took 35) at 350 deg. F.

Let cool 15 minutes or so on wire rack and cut into pieces (can be frozen, but
let cool completely, first).

Enjoy!
