Old Favorites For Baking: Coffee Cake

Basic coffee cake
In my family Coffee Cake is the ultimate comfort food. My mother’s grandmother perfected a recipe that has been handed down through the generations. Holiday mornings we inevitably wake up to the smell of a fresh baked confection coming out of the oven. When someone is sick or has suffered a bereavement they are comforted with Coffee Cake. My beloved grandfather, Frankie, was so fond of these cakes we would often hear him telling Nana “you should sell this recipe, it is just that good.” Considering it part of her heritage, she was not about to part with the recipe, but I believe she would consent to the way we have chosen to share the family fortune.

Preheat your oven to 350 f. In a large bowl cream together

  • ½ CUP SOUR CREAM (OR PLAIN yogurt)

Add the contents of the bag. Mix all ingredients well.  Spray a 9x9 pan or small bundt pan with non stick cooking spray and pour batter into the pan. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. The addition of crumbled brown sugar on top, almonds, walnuts or candy chips will give this cake your own unique  signature. 

Ingredients: Corn, Arrowroot, and Rice Flours, Cane Sugar, Russian Mulling Spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, coriander & special pure orange extract [alcohol, water and pure orange oil]), Baking Soda & Kosher Salt.
