Wholesome Wednesday: Quick Coffee Cake

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

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 9×13 and still make a great cake.

Quick Coffee Cake

2 eggs
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 8×8 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.
