Coffee Cake - a breakfast treat

Here is the recipe for an easy coffee cake that is sure to be a hit at your breakfast or brunch. I even use it for dessert when I need to whip up something quick. Coffee cakes tend to be a bit drier than regular cake which makes them perfectly paired with a cup of hot coffee or cappuccino.

Coffee Cake

Preheat oven to 375

Cake Batter:
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 c. brown sugar
1 Tbl. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon (I love the McCormick Saigon Cinnamon)
2 Tbl. butter
1/2 c. chopped pecans

Topping - Melt butter in a glass bowl in the microwave and add the rest of the topping ingredients and stir.

Cake batter - Combine oil, egg & milk. Stir in the dry ingredients. Put in a greased 9 x 9 x 2 pan. (I usually just use some parchment paper in the pan). Sprinkle the topping evenly and bake. Enjoy! For a bigger crowd, a doubled recipe fits perfectly in a 13 x 9 x 2 pan.
