Coconut Coffee Cake

24 Feb

I think it is only appropriate that I make my first post a recipe since I am classified

as “chef extraordinaire” (which I think is a bit exaggerated).

Last week at our coffee gathering this coffee cake got  rave reviews, hope you enjoy.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk

Coconut Nut Topping:

2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flaked coconut
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine dry ingredients for cake. Beat together egg, oil and milk, then add to dry ingredients.

Grease pan. Fill pan with cake batter and level off top with a spatula.

Coconut Nut Topping: combine ingredients after cake is baked and spread over cake while still warm. Broil on low (just under top burner in oven) til lightly golden. Watch carefully so as not to burn.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.



Bon appetit!
