Cinnamon Nut Coffee Cake

Our adult small group meets on Sunday mornings at church while our kids have their own small groups. When I wake up early on Sundays (which doesn't happen as often as I would like!!) I get up and make something to bake for our small group. I had been thinking about it this week and how I would like to take something - and what do you know - at 6 am I was wide awake. I decided to try a new recipe - here goes....

1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp flour
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp butter, melted

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a small bowl whisk the butter, eggs, milk and vanilla.
Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened; set aside. In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients.

Spread half of batter into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Sprinkle with half of the topping. Carefully spread the remaining batter over top; sprinkle batter with the remaining topping.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm.

Serves 12 - 15 pieces.
Home from Church and the coffee cake was yummy. This will go in the keep pile :0>


  1. You know you're setting yourself up for getting up at 6am two Sundays from now, right? I'll be setting an alarm clock... **chuckles**

    It looks absolutely delicious. You ROCK!

  2. THIS WAS AWESOME - more crumb coating than cake :) but who is counting?
