recipe time!

What a bad way to start the day...

But a warm piece of Mom's coffee cake sure makes up for it...

That picture really doesn't do it justice.
It has 2 layers of streusel.
The top is so crunchy and sweet.
One of my favorite breakfasts!
And oh-so-easy to make!

Mom's Streusel Coffee Cake
Batter                                                         Streusel
1 egg                                                          1/2 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar                                                 2 T. butter, softened 
1/3 c. butter, melted                                     2 T. flour
1/2 c. milk                                                   1 t. cinnamon
1 t. vanilla
1 & 1/2 c. flour
2 & 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Beat the egg, add sugar and melted butter and beat well.  Add milk and vanilla.  With a spoon beat in flour, baking powder and salt.  Turn 1/2 the batter into a greased 8x8 pan.  Mix together streusel ingredients with a fork.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the streusel on batter.  Add second 1/2 of batter and then the rest of the streusel.  Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

(With a hot cup of coffee.  Or a cold glass of milk!)
