Coffee House Coffee Cake

This recipe may not be the best thing for a low cholesterol diet, but a little coffee cake every now and then never hurt anyone!

Coffee House Coffee Cake


1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Make topping by combining flour with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Mixture should have the consistency of moist sand. Add chopped pecans.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add this dry mixture to the moist ingredients a little bit at a time. Add milk and mix well.

Spoon batter into a 9x13-inch baking pan that has been buttered and dusted with a light coating of flour.

Sprinkle the crumb topping over the batter. Be sure the topping completely covers the batter.

Bake cake for 50 minutes, or until the edges just begin to turn light brown and cake tests done. Cool.
