Coffee Cake

Look what we made for father's day! (well, the pictures are from another day, but we made it yesterday too!)

Cinnamon Coffee Cake:
2c flour
1 1/8 c sugar
10tbsp butter, softened
1tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3tbsp buttermilk powder
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c water
1/2 c brown sugar
1tbsp cinnamon

Mix flour and sugar in bowl of stand mixer
Add butter

Using a whisk or the whisk attachment of stand mixer, cut butter into flour/sugar mixture


Remove one cup and set aside
To remaining mixture, add baking powder, baking soda and buttermilk powder

Add egg, vanilla and water. Mix on medium-high speed until it looks like frosting

To the one cup of flour/sugar/butter you set aside, mix in brown sugar and cinnamon

Spread batter in greased spring form pan (I spray with non-stick cooking spray)

Sprinkle the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top and gently press down into batter with your hand

Bake at 350 degrees for about 50-55 minutes.

Remove sides of the pan and once cool, remove from bottom of pan. If you keep it in a cake server, it's good for a couple of days, but it's definitely tastier the more fresh it is.

Original recipe from The Best Recipe cookbook, slightly modified to fit my ingredients/taste
