Easy Coffee Cake

I used to make sour cream coffee cake but it was never good as a spur of the moment weekend breakfast because I never have sour cream in the house. I started to like this recipe a lot more, which I got from my boyfriend's mother. This is a much more reasonable spur of the moment coffee cake. It uses ingredients you always find in your kitchen.

Coffee Cake


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt` 
Ingredients for topping
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  1. Beat egg, milk and melted butter. Mix in butter
  2. Mix the dry ingredients and add those to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined
  3. Pour mix into greased loaf or cake pan. Top with brown sugar topping (you can double the topping if desired)
  4. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, depending on the thickness of the loaf. It will look very skinny but it will rise quite a bit.
