Today's sweet treat is a coffee cake. This was Christian's idea and it turned out pretty good!
Ingredients for batter:
1 1/2 sticks softened butter
1 1/2 C granulated sugar
3 eggs at room temperature
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 C sour cream
2 Cups + 3 tbs GF flour OR All purpose flour - NOT SELF RISING.
5 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Ingredients for streusel:
1/4 C light brown sugar
1/2 C all purpose (or GF) flour
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbs COLD butter, sliced
3/4 C chopped walnuts or nut of your choice - I had no nuts, so mine was nutless ;)
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 10 inch bundt pan or similar....
I had to grind my very coarse turbinado sugar (it was all I had on the spot) into a finer granulated sugar.....
Mix together the softened butter and sugar for a few minutes, then add your eggs one at a time and mix an additional minute, and then add the vanilla and sour cream....
...then I mixed up the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.....
Then add the flour mixture to the sugar and butter mixture until just combined and finish stirring with a wooden spoon to ensure it's all mixed well....
For the streusel, put all the ingredients in a bowl and pinch together with your fingers until it resembles this:
The rest has no pictures because I was distracted ... oops! But here is how you put it together: pour out half of your cake batter in pan and sprinkle about half of the streusel on top, then the rest of the batter and top with the remaining streusel. Bake for 50 min to an hour or more, just start checking with a toothpick around 50 min....
.......annnnnnnnnd now time to taste this sweetness..... wow! Sweet-stuff OVERLOAD - but so good!!
