Western Coffee Cake

01 Apr

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.)
