Here we go again, having cake for breakfast! But it is COFFEEcake, so it's totally a breakfast food, right?
This is a really yummy one. A little bacon on the side, add some fruit, and you've got yourself a great Christmas morning breakfast!
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 TBSP butter, softened
2 TBSP flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
For streusel: in small bowl, combine brown sugar, 2 TBSP softened butter, 2 TBSP flour, cinnamon, and nuts. Mix together with a fork until well-combined.
For batter: beat egg with a hand mixer until frothy. Beat in sugar and butter until well combined. Add milk and vanilla. Stir in baking powder, salt, and flour.
Spread half of the batter into a 8x8 baking dish that has been either buttered or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle half the streusel mixture over the batter. Repeat with remaining batter and streusel mixture.
Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Cool slightly on wire rack, serve warm.
