Buttermilk Coffee Cake - Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook
I have made this several times for my husband's breakfast.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 eggs beaten
1 1/3 cups butter milk or sour milk
1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 13x9x2 inch baking pan; set aside. In a large bowl combine flour, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside 1/2 cup. Stir baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg into remaining crumb mixture.
In a medium bowl combine eggs and buttermilk. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Stir together reserved crumb mixture and nuts; sprinkle over batter.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly; serve warm.
Makes 18 pieces.
