Wholesome Wednesday: Quick Coffee Cake
Today's Wholesome Wednesday creation is a quick coffee cake. I was amazed that it actually was super quick to throw together. We're talking just a few minutes. Made a very thick custard like dough that was easy to spread in the pan. I'm thinking that nuts in the topping would be a good addition. This makes a moist airy cake. It rose a lot, more than doubled in size while baking, so if you wanted it could probably go in a larger pan like a 9x13 and still make a great cake.
Quick Coffee Cake
6 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
Beat eggs until light. Add the sugar gradually while beating. Add the melted butter, while beating. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl, whisk. Add the flour and milk alternately to the first mixture. Dough will be very thick and custard like. Turn into a greased 8x8 pan, if you want it tall like mine. Brush the top lightly with melted butter and sprinkle with topping*. Bake at 350 degrees, for about 30 minutes till toothpick inserted comes out clean.
3 tablespoons fine breadcrumbs (I used panko)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix in bowl. Sprinkle on coffee cake.
