Struesel Filled Coffee Cake

Another lake food...we normally do a big breakfast, snack attack, and a later dinner, so breakfast goes beyond cereal and fruit! I liked this a lot, except next time I will add a touch more milk to the batter to get some more moisture in there. I got this recipe from an old church cookbook--I think church ladies often have some of the best recipes out there!

Streusel-Filled Coffee Cake

Streusel Filling and topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 t cinnamon
2 T flour
2 T butter or margarine
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Mix together with a fork before mixing coffee cake.

Coffee Cake:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
3/4 c sugar
1/4 c butter
1 egg
1/2 cup milk (will increase to 1/2 cup + 2 T next time)

Preheat oven to 375. Sift dry ingredients, cut in butter. Blend in well beaten egg mixed with milk. Spread half the batter in a greased and floured 8 inch square pan. Sprinkle with half the streusel mixture. Add the other half of batter, and sprinkle streusel over top. Bake 25 to 30 minutes in 375 oven. Serves 8 or 9.
