Dana’s Coffee Cake

by Katie on March 17, 2010

Let me just say that this coffee cake and I go back a long way! I can remember my mom making it many times while growing up. I just loved waking up to the sweet cinnamon smell wafting through the house.

This would be a great thing to whip up on a Saturday morning! It is quick and easy to put together. It is also great because it uses items that most people already have in the pantry!

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup nuts

Combine oil, egg, and milk. Sift together dry ingredients and add to milk mixture. Mix well. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Mix together topping ingredients and sprinkle over batter. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes.

Hi, Katie! You have an awesome blog! I am in great need of saving money, but my creativity is limited. Your ideas are fantastic and inspirational.

I am going to peruse your place for a little while. Thanks so much!

God bless,

Thanks for stopping by! I just read that you are a dental assistant. I am too! Only I'm not working right now. I've been in the Ortho field the last few years and needed a little break. :)

Just came out of the oven… Smells YUMMY!! They should make a candle and name it Dana's Coffee Cake… :) Can't wait to dig in!

Sorry, just had to post again after the "tasting"… you know you have a winner when all 4 kids sit in silence and all they can say in "OOHH!" Then, they came downstairs this a.m. saying "Mom, is there any coffee cake left??"" This is a KEEPER!! :)


Katie October 1, 2010 at 10:46 am

Misty, I agree, a coffee cake candle in Dana's honor…she would be rich!!

SO glad the kids loved it!! Next time you have to double it so they can have more!
