Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Photobucket

I have been seeing so many good things floating around on Pinterest lately. I always find myself gravitating toward the food - no surprise there! I decided that I am going to actually make some of the things that look good to me. And if I like them, then I will share them with you!

I was trying to think of a good dessert the other night & my mind kept going back to this cake. It was perfect because we were all out of ice cream and I knew this would go well with a tall glass of milk. It was really easy to make and had a wonderful texture - the two batters mixed together made it light and dense at the same time. My family LOVED it and kept going back for more! I had to quickly grab a piece to take a picture before it was all gone.

This cake would be really great for breakfast. You could make it ahead of time also and serve it cold or warmed up, either way tastes great! I will definitely be making this again, thank you Pinterest!

CAKE:
3 cups Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Sugar
4 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 1/2 cups Milk
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter

TOPPING:
1 cup (2 sticks) soft butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Flour
1 tablespoon Cinnamon

GLAZE:
2 cups Powdered Sugar
5 tablespoons Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 glass baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

Mix together the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well , slowly stir in the melted butter. Pour into the prepared 9×13 baking pan.

To make the topping, combine the 2 sticks of butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon together until well combined and creamy. Drop evenly over the batter by the tablespoonfuls and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.

Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes or when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out nearly clean.

FOR GLAZE: In a medium bowl, mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together with a whisk. Drizzle evenly over the warm cake.
