Coffee Cake with Praline Topping

12 Jan

Coffee Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup soft butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk

Praline Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 stick of soft butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Karo light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice

Preheat oven to 350. Butter a round cake pan or a 9x9x2 (aprx) baking dish.

In a medium mixing bowl combine all the Praline Topping ingredients and mix well. I use a pastry cutter to ensure the butter is cut thoroughly into the rest of the ingredients. Set aside.

Into a large mixing bowl sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add butter, egg and milk. Beat hard for 2 minutes. Pour into the cake pan or baking dish. Top with the praline topping mixture. I crumble it over the top of the batter with my fingers. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour. You will know it’s done when a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.

    I was thinking of making a coffee cake for a meeting tomorrow. I think I’ll try your batter with my corn flake/pecan/brown sugar topping. Thanks!

      Denise I am so excited to hear you are going to try my coffee cake batter. I love your topping ingredients, I’m thinking I will try that combination the next time I make a coffee cake.

    i can estimate baking time, but you might want to add how long for newbies and those that aren’t bakers.

      Never mind, I found it…lol. I’m so tired I can’t see straight. I didn’t read far enough down. I think I should increase the view size on this monitor.

        Not sure I know how to do that Denise…seriously I am really not good with technology. But maybe I just decrease the spacing so it looks like it belongs to the recipe. Thanks for the heads up though. I am still trying to learn how to work within this program.
