Mom's Breakfast Coffee Cake

This one's perfect for lazy mornings when you don't have a lot of ingredients on hand, but don't want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen.  It's easy to mix together and stick in the oven. 

You can even prepare it the night before so you're good to go in the morning.  


This is a favorite from when I was a kid.  My mom made it a lot.  

We double it for our family of 7.


1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup margarine, cut in (can use canola oil)

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tsp salt


1/2 cup brown sugar

1 Tbsp maragarine or butter (I use butter)

1 Tbsp flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon


Mix first seven ingredients together and put half of the mixture in bottom of 8" square pan.


Combine next four ingredients (brown sugar, butter, flour and cinnamon).  Place half on bottom mixture; place the rest of flour mixture over brown sugar mixture and top with last half of brown sugar mixture. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
