Favorite Coffee Cake

Favorite Coffee Cake, that is what it is called in my old Betty Crocker Cookbook. And it was a favorite made for us for breakfast by our granddaughter, Shaela during our recent visit.

Shaela's got spunk, personality ~ and is sweet to the core.
She just celebrated her 10th birthday!
I made coffee cake this past weekend to enjoy before heading out to stack firewood and rake leaves.
I sliced the remainder, placed between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container and froze to enjoy whenever someone wants a snack.

Serves 9-12

1½ cups all-purpose flour

2½ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
¼ cup butter, softened (or shortening)
¾ cup milk
1 egg

⅓ cup brown sugar, packed
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp firm butter, in small pieces

Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Grease a round layer pan (9x1 1/2 inches) or square pan (8x8x2 or 9x9x2 inches).

Blend all ingredients except topping. Beat well for ½ minute. Spread into pan.

Mix topping ingredients until crumbly; sprinkle topping over batter.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Serve warm.

Looks yummy!! Your granddaughter is sweet :)
Thanks for sharing, I love coffee flavoured things. But I did not see any specific ingredient, what gives the coffee flavour to the cake?
