The Best Coffee Cake

Recipe Sharing.

I love to bake.  I’d rather bake than cook any day.  Oddly enough I don’t eat a lot of my baking unless it’s buttertart squares and this coffee cake.  Although the recipe labels it Cinnabon bread or something like that, I prefer to call it coffee cake.  Delish coffee cake.

I always want to share the amazing recipes I find, but typically hold back.  Every once in a while I will send out a recipe to a group of friends and family,  not really knowing if they care for it, or want me to even share it with them.  This is a great place to put my favourites!!  Here’s one to get me going.

Butter.  Not margarine.  Butter.  Margarine is oil based and butter is milk based.  Big difference when you’re baking.  Don’t even get me going on margarine.  Garbage on your grocery shelf.

Taaaadaaaaa!!!  The recipe. I promise you will love.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Base:
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted

Topping:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Glaze:
2 cups icing sugar
5 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a 9 x 13 baking pan (buttered).

Mix all of the base ingredients together, with the exception of the butter. Add the melted butter last, and then pour into your prepared pan,

Mix all of the topping ingredients together in a separate bowl. Mix well. Drop by teaspoonful over the base, as evenly as you can over the entire base. Take a butter knife and swirl the topping into the base. Pop into the oven and bake for 28-30 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE.

While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze and set aside.

Remove from oven and glaze the cake while still warm.
