Recipe: My Mom's Coffee Cake

The kids asked for coffee cake for breakfast, and my go-to recipe is my mother's.  It's highly adaptable.  I did a straight-forward cinnamon coffee cake with oat topping. 

And it was delicious.

It goes together best in a food processor, but you can mix it by hand or in a stand mixer.

My Mom's Cinnamon Coffee Cake

1 c all purpose flour
1 c wheat flour
1/2 c butter
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

1 c skim milk

1 c rolled oats
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix dry ingredients together with butter until nicely crumbled.  Add milk and blend until smooth.  Pour into a greased 8"-9" square pan, 2-3 inches deep.

In the same bowl,  add topping ingredients, blending until it is crumbs.  Sprinkle evenly over batter.  Bake about 25-40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Variations:  Use your imagination!  Substitute orange juice for the milk, add a little orange zest, add nuts to the crumbs, add some berries or apples.. have fun and experiment.

Pin It!
