I wanted to share one of the easiest coffee cake recipes I’ve ever come across. I’ve altered it a bit, here and there to match my desired taste. But, I won’t be offended if you do the same.
It’s fairly easy and though it may not be the best, it is by me.
Western Coffee Cake
- 3 cups Flour
- 2 cups Brown Sugar
- 2/3 cup Shortening
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 2 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon (here I used just a smidge more. I LOVE cinnamon :D)
- 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
- 1 cup Milk
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup Chopped Nuts *
Mix flour, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening. Mixture will be crumbly. Remove 1/2 cup and reserve for topping. Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix thoroughly and pour into a greased 9×13′ baking pan. Sprinkle reserved topping over batter with a dash of cinnamon 😀 .
Bake at 350^F for 20-25 minutes.
*Optional (You can add the nuts to the reserved topping before sprinkling over the batter.)
