Breakfast Cake

Grandma and Grandpa Long are visiting this week, so we decided to whip up a coffee cake for breakfast this morning. Evan is quite the little helper. He loves stirring and mixing, even though in the picture above, he is only stirring water and the cake is already in the oven. Now, the downside of making a cake for breakfast was that it was pretty hard to get Evan to eat his scambled eggs and apple while the rest of us ate cake!

This is a really quick cake to make. It is best when it is warm, but it will keep for a few days. Here is the recipe, if you'd like to try it.

Cinnamon Breakfast Cake

6 T. melted butter
1 egg
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

2 T. melted butter
3 T. brown sugar
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 cup (or more) chopped nuts

For cake: Combine milk and agg. Add flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add melted butter. Spread into a 9x13 or 9x9 pan.

For topping: Mix nuts, cinnamon and brown sugar. Drizzle batter with 2 T. of melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and nut mixture.

Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.
