Buttermilk Coffee Cake

My first coffee cake!

Josh says he likes coffee cake. I wonder what he will think of this one. It's a pretty basic recipe from the Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook.
Not bad.

Serve on 1950's dishes with coffee, and enjoy!


Buttermilk Coffee Cake
from The Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook, 12th Edition

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups (330 grams) packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup (10 2/3 tablespoons) butter
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 beaten eggs
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup chopped nuts

  • Grease bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a large bowl combine flour, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside 1/2 cup. Stir baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg into remaining crumb mixture.
  • In another bowl combine eggs and buttermilk. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Combine reserved crumb mixture and nuts; sprinkle over batter.
  • Bake in a 350° oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm.
