Cowboy Coffee Cake

I wanted to take a little something to the office and this Cowboy Coffee Cake sounded perfect! It literally came together in 10 minutes and I easily cut the recipe in half, an 8x8 baking dish works fine.
Everyone loved it! Especially the crumbs on top.

Cowboy Coffee Cake-by Posed Perfection
2 1/2 C A/P flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 C brown sugar
2/3 C butter, slightly softened
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 C sour milk-add 1 Tblsp vinegar to a 1 C measure, fill the rest of the way with milk, let sit for 5 minutes
2 well beaten eggs
  1. Mix flour, salt and brown sugar.
  2. Cut butter in until crumbly, I used a fork.
  3. Set 1/2 C mixture aside.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well. Mine stayed a tad lumpy.
  5. Pour into a well greased 9x13 pan.
  6. Sprinkle the top with reserved mix.
  7. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
There was only one concern about this cake, Earl said...
What do you mean you're taking it to the office???

This is very nice folks! Today's tip-Nici even says sometimes she'll prepare it the night before,
store it in the fridge and then bake it in the morning... Doesn't get much easier than that!

  1. I love when the words "delicious" and "easy" appear in a recipe. Also love something that is quick to put together and have warm from the oven when the household rises.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  11. I love all kinds of coffee/crumb cakes. This looks and sounds really good. Love the Corning plate in the harvest gold. Wow, took me back about 35 years. ;-) xo

  12. I have been a subscriber for several months and I really enjoy all the variety you include, especially your recipes. It's nice to see you cut down the size of some of them, as we are empty nesters and have very little will-power. I love that grape pie you made recently. It was a work of art.

  18. Love recipes with stuff that I always have on hand, and this is one of them.

    BJ made me laugh about eating brown sugar with a spoon because I do too.

  21. Lynn,
    The cake looks great. I want a big piece. Love grape pie, too! I used to make them back when I had grapes out back.
    Two things....
    1. my beans that were eaten by bunnies (my first crop) have rejuvenated and I am harvesting beans from them! It's like the bunnies just kept them cut back so they would produce again!???
    2. I made the pickled jalapenos! What fun! I did take out seeds and membrane - cut off the caps into the sink, and then cored out the middle with my veg. peeler. Usually I cry and sneeze when I cut up jalepenos, but this method really helped! Then I sliced and pickled.
    Thanks! Hope you are having a great week!
