Cinnamon Coffee Cake

One of my favorite types of cookbooks happens to be the ones churches/organizations put out for fundraisers.  These contain a vast array of recipes that have been in families for, sometimes, generations.  I purchased one of these from the Crivitz Area Women's Club from Crivitz, WI.  Every recipe I have made out of the book has been a winner!

We spent the weekend at the cabin and enjoyed one of the best weekends, so far, this summer.  The weather was perfect.  Low 80's during the day and low 60's during the evenings.  On Saturday we went to beach for the day.  Before we left, I made this Cinnamon Coffee Cake for breakfast with eggs and bacon.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake
1 1/2 cup flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg white
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup skim milk

1.  Sift flour, baking powder, sugar.  Blend in egg white, oil, milk and stir until flour is moistened.  Batter will be thick.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons oil
2 teaspoon cinnamon

1.  Mix all topping ingredients and spread 1/2 of batter in an oiled 8-inch baking pan.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the topping, add the rest of batter.  Sprinkle the rest of topping.  Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until done.

Hint:  To spread the batter, I used a piece of plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray.
