Old-fashioned Coffee Cake

OLD-FASHIONED COFFEE CAKE

There are so many coffee cake recipes these days -- many of them good ones -- but my favorite is this coffee cake, which guests say tastes just like the coffee cake they grew up with. With a cup of tea or coffee, who could ask for anything more?

Serves 12

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup corn oil
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9X13X2" baking pan liberally.

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, 1 tsp. of the cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and corn oil. Stir to mix together well. Measure 3/4 cup of this mixture and place in a smaller bowl; add to it the nuts and remaining cinnamon. Stir together thoroughly until mixed. Set aside.

Add to the larger bowl the baking soda, baking powder, egg and buttermilk. Stir only to combine, but if the batter has small lumps, that's OK. Pour the batter into the pan. Sprinkle the flour-nut mixture from the smaller bowl over the top of the batter.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve warm.

Anne, that is our family's all-time favorite coffee cake, as well, except my Mom made one small adjustment in the filling/topping recipe.... she added about 1/4 cup of sweetened cocoa (like Nestle's Quick) to the sugar, instead of all the spices, then added cinnamon and left out the nuts... It's a tasty variation you might like!

To all you good bakers: I hope you like it. I think it's out of this world! I know the owner of a very, very successful restaurant in our area (rave reviews in all the best magazines and newspapers) who serves a coffee cake for breakfast almost identical to this one. Many of her customers eat their breakfast there so they can enjoy a piece of her coffee cake. It's THAT good! I wish I could tell you how many of these she bakes every morning, but I can't remember. It's a LOT, though!
