- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup milk
Firstly beat the egg, milk and the oil together. Then separately mix the dry ingredients together in a different bowl and add the dry mix to the egg mix.
Then lightly dust out a buttered baking dish with flour and tap away any excess flour when the bowl is completely covered with flour.
Add this cake mixture to a baking tray or pan and level off with a baking knife.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 370 degrees (F) for 25 minutes.
Voila and Congratulations – you now have a stunning cinnamon coffee cake!
How easy was this to make? And it took you just over 45 minutes from start to finish.
But, we haven’t finished there!
A Stunning Topping for Your Cinnamon Coffee Cake
NB: You have to add the topping while your cake is still hot or it will not work! So you should reduce the cooking time down by 5 minutes if you want to add a topping and then follow the rest of the recipe.
There are several variations for a suitable topping, but as I like coconut and nuts, so here goes…
- 1 cup of coconut
- Half to 2/3 of a cup of brown sugar
- 1/3 cup of butter
- Half cup of double cream
Mix the ingredients together and spread over the cake while it is still hot. Put the cake into the top of the oven until the coconut topping has turned a light golden color (anything up to 5 minutes is usually enough.
