Not only that, but is easy to make in a jiffy and if you do any baking, odds are you will have all the ingredients on hand. You'll find that it is a great "company's coming" recipe.
It is a modified version of the "Prize Coffee Cake" found in the 1956 version of the Betty Crocker Cookbook.
Step 1: Gather Equipment
-8x8 baking pan (preferably Pyrex)
-large mixing bowl
-small mixing bowl
-wooden spoon (for mixing the batter)
-small mixing spoon (for struesel mix)
-assorted measuring cups and spoons
-toothpick (to test if done)
(Yes, you do need an oven also!!!)
Step 2: Gather Ingredients
-Milk (Whole is best)
-Shortening (if desired)
That's all you'll need, It's that easy.
At this point, preheat your oven to 375degrees Farhenheit.
Step 3: The Recipe
1/4 cup Butter (or shortening)
1/2 cup Milk
1 1/2 cup Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons melted Butter
If you live at High Altitudes:
-increase Flour to 1 5/8 cup
-decrease baking powder to 1 teaspoon
Step 4: Prepare the Batter
-Cream together the sugar and butter (You may substitute shortening for butter at this point.)
-Add egg. Blend well.
-Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder) together in small bowl.
-Add 1/2 of milk to the batter in the large bowl. Stir until blended.
-Blend 1/2 of flour mixture into the batter.
-Next add in the remaining milk. Mix until blended.
-Add remaining flour mixture until combined.
Step 5: Prepare the Struesel
-Melt butter in microwave. (Around 30 seconds)
-Mix in brown sugar and cinnamon.
Delicious! Don't let your family steal to much!
Step 6: Assemble the Cake
Sprinkle 1/2 of streusel mix over the batter. (The streusel should be moist , rubbing it between your fingers should help to spread it evenly.)
Spread remaining bater over top of the struesel.
Top with remaining streusel.
Step 7: Bake the Cake
Bake for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees.
To check if cake is done, insert a clean toothpick into center of cake. If toothpick comes out clean, your cake is done. If batter clings to toothpick, bake cake for additional 5minutes, and recheck.
Allow cake to cool for 10-15 minutes.
